Annals of Heartlessness (19): “I Ain’t Got No Body”

annals of heartlessness

A public decapitation in China on a postcard, with a heartless comment:

beheading in China

beheading in China

(source unknown)

The precise historical context of the scene is unclear to me, but it appears to be during or before WWII, and the executioners are probably Japanese soldiers.

The song that’s cited in the comment is here. More on decapitation here and here. More in the annals of heartlessness here.
