On this day in 1948 Gandhi was assassinated in New Delhi by a Hindu fanatic.
In a career spanning more than two decades, photographer Margaret Bourke-White fearlessly documented many facets of the human experience. Her astonishing portfolio ranged from trailblazing assignments in the Soviet Union in the late 1920s, to capturing the horrors of the Buchenwald concentration camp upon its liberation in 1945. And Bourke-White’s focus on humanitarian issues — showcased in these stunning images of Mohandas Gandhi in India — was equally renowned.
Pictured here in 1946, the leader sits next to a spinning wheel, a device used to make yarn or thread; the image came to symbolize Indian self sufficiency — and thus independence from British rule.

Sunday, January 30th 1972
In an incident in Derry, Northern Ireland Bernard McGuigan, 41, (pictured) and twenty five other protesters were shot by soldiers in the British Army.
The Bogside Massacre, also known as Bloody Sunday, took place during a civil rights protest. Of the 25 injured, 13 fatalities occurred.
French Photojournalist Gilles Peres was on assignment covering protest on behalf of the Magnum photo agency on this day, above is one of the photographs he captured.
Upon recollection of the incident Peres stated:
“I know that at one point I was shooting and crying at the same time. I think it must’ve been when I saw Barney McGuigan dead.
This was the first time I saw what a real war weapon can do. I mean the destruction, the impact of it. Up until then, I thought that bullets killed you but they would kill you kind of neatly. You understand what I’m saying? This was the first time I realized the terrible destruction that those things create.”
