The photographs are powerful and poignant but also very dignified at the same time. The inclusion of the short biographies at the end and the handwritten words, opposite each portrait, allow for a more intimate connection with each survivor without feeling voyeuristic. I still find it difficult to turn more than few pages at a time and in a way that is a testament to how important this book is and the message it conveys.
If you ever needed proof that good conquers evil then this is it.
A wonderful piece of social history, memorizing images and thought provoking biographies. A real tribute to those who were photographed.
