Wolfskinder. A post-war story.

A great example of inspiration has been the series 'Wolfskinder' by Claudia Heinermann. Heinermann is a German photographer from Iserlohn who also works in the Netherlands. She photographed the German war orphans of WW 2 who we were living in hiding for years in the forests of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania on the run for the Russian army. After the disintegration of the Soviet Union their lives changed completely. A wonderful social realist documentary series with accompanying book 'Wolfkinder. A post-war story'.
