Beschrijving

The traces of the Second World War have become seemingly invisible over recent years. Yet the full horror can still be felt in the survivors’ stories, their eyes reflecting the terror and trauma of a wartime childhood. Through his images of the blind victims of war, Martin Roemers has unearthed a haunting metaphor for the depths of the human soul. For this book, he made portraits of dozens of people, who had lost their eyesight as children, young adults or soldiers. This publication features forty portraits with accompanying interviews; it remembers the forgotten yet transcends their individual stories of suffering. Former enemies from Germany, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Belgium, the Ukraine and Russia are united in their fate as blind people and as victims of war.

This publication is made possible through grants provided by the Hendrik Muller Fonds, the Mondriaan Fonds and the Stichting Democratie en Media.
