April, 1985 (Sweden). A lady is hitting a skinhead with her handbag; she had been in a concentration camp during World War II. 
The photo was taken at a provocative demonstration by ten Neo-Nazis at the corner of Norrgatan-Kronobergsgatan in Växjö (very close to another demonstration by the communist party). The Nazis were attacked by the public and chased to the Växjö train station where they locked themselves in the bathroom - and had to be rescued by police.
It is said that the lady with the bag committed suicide after constant threats and harassment from Neo-Nazis.
The photo was awarded “Photo of the Century”. The photographer was Hans Runesson
