Hola Ana, muchíssimas gracias. Me alegra de que te guse precisamente esa foto. Para mi simbolizaba toda aquella crueldad incomprensible. Intentemos lograr que no haya más alambradas en el mundo.....
Gracias Ana. Con carino, abrazos, Maja
Gracias Juan. Para mi era un símbolo de todo lo inhumano que pasó allí. Incomprensible. Gracias por visitar también esa foto lúgubre.
Te felicito una vez más, porque te lo mereces.
Toni, muchíssimas gracias por el BO para este sitio tan terrible. Con simpatía, Maja
Muchas gracias Beatriz, por visitar también es foto de un sitio tan lúgubre. Saludos cordiales a Brasil. Maja
Dark, passionless kisses were sure to have wounded the spirits of the detainees, and continue to tear the hearts of those of us in these times. Thank you for this series of photos dear Maya.
I am reminded of the poetry of Wilfred Owen, and the music of Benjamin Britten.
Warm greetings, Amelia
Thank you so much dear Amelia for appreciating this very image. A true nightmare. Owen, Britten and many other artists tried to express the sheer horror with their means.... I think it was Adorno who said once "to write a poem after Auschwitz has happened is a crime against humanity"....
All my best wishes to you - Maja
I'm not sure who wrote that quote either dear Maya, but Wilfred Owen wrote all his war poems while in action in France. He was killed in action at the Battle of the Sambre a week before the war ended. In a moment of ghastly irony, the telegram from the War Office announcing his death was delivered to his mother's home as her town's church bells were ringing in celebration of the Armistice. The pity of war ....
There are millions of heartbraking stories like the one you were mentioning dear Amelia - millions and millions, and every single one of them heartbreaking. More than anyone can take, and yet...
I agree! It is quite a triumph to capture the ugly in a beautiful photograph. YS for you and I will add you as a favorite photographer. Best wishes from Michigan, Marlene
In this case the beauty is saw is the sky, light, prevailing behind our atrocities dear Marlene.... this is also what we are aiming for in life I think: to make light prevail - not always easy but the only way....
Thank you for the honour of adding me to your favs dear Marlene - I had a glimpse at your gallery and did the same, will come back this evening with more time - cheers!!!!
Warmest greetings from Germany, Maja
