Lest We Forget – Art as a record

On Remembrance Sunday, we always take time to observe the 2 minute silence and reflect on the loss inflicted in the name of war.  I find this all very moving (my son always teases me about my glassy eyes).  We took our son to France in 2010 on a Battlefield Holiday and although the title isn’t great, it was our annual holiday.
We wanted to show our son, who has a fascination with war and battles, that there is a human side to conflict.  At one of the museums we visited I saw these small postcard pictures of an individual’s first hand account of life in a concentration camp.  Although he may no longer be with us, his record gives us a window into a very cruel world.
