A German woman in the 1920’s, using Deutsche marks as fuel because hyper-inflation has rendered them completely useless.

The above image and the story behind it have haunted me since 7th grade, when I first saw it in my World History textbook. It was the moment I stopped thinking about Germany as being populated entirely by Nazi hellions, and started to seriously consider the people who are just trying to live their lives in the middle of what often becomes a warzone.
