Łukasz Kuś: Survivors

63 years ago, on January 27, 1945, Red Army soldiers liberated KL Auschwitz-Birkenau.
This is a documentary project presenting portraits of former prisoners of KL Auschwitz - Birkenau - German nazis death camp, which was located in Oświęcim, Poland during the time of World War II.
The photographs presented in the F Blog are only a part of a very big 'collection' I made in last few years.
It was one of my hardest-to-realize photoprojects. Those people (of course not only, because there is a lot more that survived Auschwitz and other death camps) are the last eye-witnesses of one of the biggest crimes in the world history, so bad that every day there is less and less of them. I hope that my photos can help to remember them.

This is a remarkable project Lukasz. History is present in your photos and this is from our "modern" times. Crimes against humanity never to be forgotten.
