Where Have All the Flowers Gone?

The exhibition's theme has no author. The subject has been created by its own historical references to human suffering how warfare with its multitude of manifestations affects children and the young sensitive mind.
Memories do not fade away by will and we can either remain silent or speak aloud. This exhibition will hopefully guide those with such experiences to open their hearths to tell what they have been witnessed before it is too late.
At the end the only reconciliation which we humans can seek for some comfort in this life: lost words shall be found, hidden memories shall be revived, and silent voices must be heard. Memories are like nature's flowers – they will wither away while autumn finally arrives.
