Sent to the North: 15 Portraits Available Online


We publish an electronic form of the exhibition Sent to the North: 15 portraits.

It consists of a set of 15 portrait photographs by art photographer Vojtěch Vlk. The catalog also publishes the stories of 15 Czechs employed in Norway. The stories are complemented by period materials from the estates of the deployers, which their descendants keep at home. This includes also war letters and diaries, as well as the memories of the descendants who keep the war experience from Norway in their family memory.

Texts and materials with the help of descendants were written and selected by: Vendula V. Hingarová / Zdenko Maršálek. Graphics: Eva Holá, Photographs: Vojtěch Vlk.
