week 28 | 2011

This week my photographs come from the north of the Netherlands. Land of moors, peat, and hunebeds. The cities of Assen and Emmen. But also the tragic reminder of former Nazi deportation camp Westerbork. 107,000 people, most of them Jews, came here. Most died in Auschwitz-Birkenau and Sobibór. Only 5,000 survived.

The photographs of this ongoing project will also be updated here.
