SummerhouseBy geertje Brandenburg
Some time ago, I found some letters my grandfather wrote towards the end of his life. In them, he was retelling his time as a forced labourer in Germany between 1943 and 1945. I was, and still am, fascinated by how these experiences lingered in him after so many years. In January 2021, I travelled to Germany, In an attempt to find what was left of my grandfathers past in my present. This publication is part of my journey to find a place for myself. It’s the (re)creation of memories and stories that, although oscillate between facts and fictions, hold warm truths.
