A popular picture shared online on number of image sharing websites is said to show “The Last Kiss” from World War II. Accompanying messages describe the scene as a historic moment of Love during war time. Although it looks good, the claim as such is not a fact.
Not ‘The Last Kiss’ from World War 2
The picture of ‘Last Kiss’ is also shared as one taken at the departure of “Amerigo Vespucci” ship in Egypt in 1963. As a matter of fact, the actual location was Italy, not Egypt. Amerigo Vespucci is a tall Italian training ship, the home port of which was La Spezia, Italy.
The 1963 travel route of the Italian ship Amerigo Vespucci can be seen here. And the journey is detailed in an Italian magazine website apneamagazine.com. You can see another similar picture from the departure below.
So, the claim that the picture shows the last kiss scene during war time of WWII is a hoax. Scenes like it were common in old times.
