The Edict of Worms bans the writings of Martin Luther and labels him a heretic and an enemy of the state.
May 25, 1895
Birth of Dorothea Lange (1895-1965), American photographer.
Lange is best known for her photographs documenting the effects of the Depression and poverty on displaced farm families, sharecroppers, and migrant labourers. Her photographs are widely published in newspapers, and help to prod the government to act to prevent outright starvation.
In 1941, she documents the forced evacuation and internment of Japanese Americans. Her photographs are considered so dangerous that the Army seizes them to prevent them from being published.
