Jones, Aaronson, and Rutherford are three men, who were arrested around 1965 before they publicly confessed to their crimes of colluding with Goldstein against the Party. After confessing, they were pardoned and reinstated to serve the Party. Winston recalls that the three individuals were later rearrested and confessed to a new series of crimes before being executed by the Party. Five years after their execution, Winston remembers unrolling a document, which was a ten-year-old page from The Times. The page was dated and contained a photograph of Jones, Aaronson, and Rutherford attending a Party function in New York. What Winston found interesting was the fact that all three men had confessed to being on Eurasian soil on the day that picture was taken. Winston specifically remembered seeing the date of their confession, which meant that the confessions were lies. The photograph in The Times is significant because it is concrete evidence that proves that The Party is falsifying records, lying to the public, and unjustly punishing its citizens. In Oceania, possessing concrete evidence that reveals the Party's true nature is extremely rare and significant. Unfortunately, Winston fears the consequences of possessing such damning evidence and throws the photograph into the memory hole.
