In south Asian countries like India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh, the gap between the "have's" and those who cook and clean for them often seems unbridgeable.

In "Close Distance," a photo essay by Bangladeshi photographer Jannatu Mawa, the distance between domestic servants and their employers is highlighted.

The ‘degenerate’ art that Hitler hated

April 18th, 2014
07:57 AM ET

The use of propaganda and the willingness to re-shape history is hardly unique to the conflict brewing in eastern Ukraine.

In fact, the modern art of propaganda reached new heights, or depths, back in the 1930s by Adolf Hitler and the Nazis, when they declared war on modern art itself.

An extraordinary exhibit at the Neue Galerie in New York is drawing huge crowds to see the kind of artwork the Nazis admired – hanging side by side with the kind they despised, what they called "degenerate art."

Acclaimed historian Simon Schama, author most recently of "The Story of the Jews," took CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on a tour, and offered a chilling reminder: First they came for the art, and then for everyone else.

The Great Escape that still inspires

March 26th, 2014

By Lucky Gold

Russia's land grab in Crimea has heightened tensions throughout Eastern Europe, rekindling memories of World War II, when Stalin's Red Army carved up countries like Poland, and devoured them with its Axis partner, Nazi Germany.

Now imagine a world where one bright memory from that same dark time still quickens the blood in the cause of freedom.

Survivors gathered and flowers were laid to remember 70 years ago, when some 76 allied prisoners slipped out of their prisoner of war camp with forged documents and improvised civilian clothing – hoping to make it to freedom.

It was called the great escape, and it was famously depicted in the Hollywood blockbuster of 1963, starring Steve McQueen.

It showed how hundreds of prisoners of war planned and executed the daring breakout.

Interesting times for time itself

February 20th, 2014
12:26 PM ET

By Lucky Gold, CNN

As parts of the world such as Ukraine and Venezuela remain ticking time-bombs, imagine a world where these are truly interesting times – for time itself.

Those anti-government demonstrators in Venezuela who say it's time for a change have a little more daylight to air their grievances, thanks to the late President Hugo Chavez.

Back in 2007, he set all the clocks forward, changing Venezuela's time zone to the half-hour – that's 30 minutes ahead of what he called the "imperialist" time keepers, presumably referring to the U.S.

And at the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, where athletes race against the clock and one another, timing is everything.

Russians take pride in knowing that Sochi time is only one of nine different time zones that stretch across their vast country, from Moscow to Vladivostok.
