Photographer's Note

About Poland. Page Three: About Nation.

In the years 1945 - 1946 millions of poeple in this region of Europe were forced to migrate into different parts of the continent.
germans were moved westwards. Poles were moved from what is currently Ukraine and Belarussia to the Polish territory. Ukrainians and Belarussians were moved eastwards from Poland.
But not everyone was moved, luckily. More and more people speak loudly about their roots: today on the picture we may see a small Lithuanian girl during the religious ceremony.
Please note that this is not just a kid photo. For me this girl symbolizes somehow a growing consciousness about one's roots, nationality etc.
