About This picture was taken in 1991 in a remote village of Abkhazia, the brake-away province of the Georgia (ex Autonomous Republic of the Soviet Union). It depicts a school in a relatively quiet period, only two weeks after the first secession war. The picture of Lenin is still hanging, two years after the soviet communist regime collapsed. Only few months after this picture was taken, the second secession war made fugitives of all the children depicted here

A sad reminder of our defunct human nature. Very powerful picture indeed. Good work.

Oh, Jurg, that is so heartbreaking, to look into those young faces with hope and knowledge, and know what awaits them.

More than for the image, thank you for the story.
We must always put a face on a war.
