REQUEST

A few shots, which are supposed to be something like a request, or a prayer. Pictures of my happy children on holiday in confrontation with children from nazi camp. There is also a latent question, how it is possible, that we can be satisfied in our safe reality, if there (in the history, but also today) are so many examples of tribulation, pain, or terror.
