Adolek and Marysia, from the series We Are Here

Photographer's Name: 
Linda Wachtel

"We Are Here* is series of portraits of Adolek and Marysia Korman, Holocaust survivors, and their descendants. Having endured the brutality of Auschwitz, their magnificent approach to life is a testament to the strength of the human spirit to survive and forgive. They are tenacious, joyous and loving. It has been both educative and a privilege to photograph their family.
*The Partisan Song by Herschel Glick, 1938 "
