Razor wire at trenches.
The danish multi-artist Robert Storm Petersen (1882-1949) once said:
“We could learn a lot from quotes and sayings, but we don’t“
We could also learn a lot from wars, but we do nor.
so many places are memories of war as monuments to mankind’s foolishness
in an absurdly way become fascinating but often don’t inspiring in a preventive way.
Five alsatian reminders which this year is one hundred years old, from World War I.
A kind of connection, or what..?
Even in a trench from the war there may be a door ajar.
The vast majority of wars are political or religious, rarely neighbor based disputes
but the ordinary people and the soldiers are hostages in this game.
But even from a trench, sometimes we can see the sunlight.
Conversation promotes understanding.
