    [–] The last photo Korean pop star Sulli posted on her Instagram, on October 12. Sulli died by suicide late on October 13 or early October 14. She was 25. CatPooedInMyShoe 13 points ago in lastimages

    Quotes from this article:

    “Sulli took a break from her group in the midst of the group's promotions for 2014 album Red Light, citing both mental and physical fatigue from continuous comments and rumors that followed her. Those comments kicked into overdrive in those months over whispers the young star was dating Choiza, the Dynamic Duo rapper 14 years her senior, when any type of dating is frowned upon by fans in the K-pop world.

    While her professional work focused on movies and modeling, the star became more known for her social media presence and divisive viewpoints. For South Korea's deeply conservative society, her "controversial" -- with controversial purposely put in quotes here -- opinions like not being a fan of bras or posting public photos with her boyfriends stirred the country's notoriously harsh online commenter community.”

    and

    “Sulli left this industry at a time when K-pop stars, especially women, are still not able to fully, freely express themselves without risking major backlash from the public. While she will be undeniably missed, one hopes that not only did Sulli's outspoken, confident way of living make a change to the traditional, harshly rigid standards that Korean celebrities seemingly must keep, but also evolve the toxic culture of online commenters that plague and taunt the K-pop stars.”

    It’s not that we aren’t aware that people are hurt when they lose a loved one to suicide. We are well aware. None of us thinks suicide is a good idea. I lost a nephew to suicide and it was devastating for our family. It’s just there’s little point in saying awful things about them now.

    Yeah, I am not saying Holocaust survivors are a dishonest bunch. (I’ve come across a few who are but most are not.) It’s just old memories, and traumatic memories, aren’t necessarily the most accurate.

    One of the most honest survivors I’ve encountered in literature is Roman Frister. He was basically a terrible person, and he freely admitted as such. He confessed to things I wouldn’t own up to if I had a gun to my head.

    Thanks for the article. I tend to regard all the “I literally survived the gas chambers” stories as untrue, though I think some of the people telling the stories believe them. You’re dealing with decades-old deeply traumatic memories, and also the fact that the Holocaust is kind of a collective memory with its traditions. Like, why is it ALWAYS Mengele doing the selections at the ramp? Didn’t he EVER take a day off from selection? The answer is he did, and others took the job, but he’s so famous that everyone who went through selection and survived just sort of assumes it was Mengele who was there and not some other, forgettable camp doctor.

    I have read that most dwarves were not of much interest to Mengele. He did keep a family of dwarves (and their normal sized relatives) for experimentation, but that’s because there was a large family of them. There’s a book about this family, who all survived. It’s called “In Our Hearts We Were Giants” and its very good; I read it.

    The maximum sentence he could have got was six years. The prosecution requested two, due to Turner’s youth, lack of a prior record and the fact that he’d been drinking heavily.
