They were just first-graders posing on class picture day. Now the names printed on the photograph spell out who perished the day a gunman stormed into their school.

“This is Victoria Soto’s class,” Shannon Engel, mother of 6-year-old victim Olivia Engel, told the New York Post.

Soto, 27, was killed trying to protect her students at Sandy Hook Elementary from the shooter's bullets, hiding them in a closet to try and keep them safe. She's pictured smiling widely with her 15 first-graders and aide Ann Marie Murphy, who tried to shield 6-year-old Dylan Hockley from the gunfire.

Also pictured in the photo are Allison Wyatt, Jesse Lewis and Avielle Richman, all 6 years old.
