Though it ended nearly 70 years ago, the horrors and lessons learned from World War II still stick with us today. The physical landscapes of the places that served as a setting for the international conflict changed significantly over the decades. However, the haunting past of the war still lingers. This photography project is a powerful reminder of that.

These ímage perfectly juxtapose the peace of the present wíth the powerful períod of war. It's hard to belíeve both how much and how líttle thíngs have changed over the past 70 years. I hope we wíll contínue to learn from our terríble místakes.
