Title: The Eyes of War
Authors: Martin Roemers
Publisher: Hatje Cantz
Year: 2012
ISBN: 9783775734004
Language: English, Dutch, German

Over the past few decades the traces of World War II have only become seemingly invisible. The horror can still be seen in the stories told by survivors; their eyes reflect the terror and trauma of a childhood lived during wartime.
In his picture of a blind war victim, photographer Martin Roemers discovered a haunting metaphor for the depths of the human soul in general, and consequently found thousands of people who lost their eyesight when they were children or young soldiers during the Second World War.
Featuring forty portraits and accompanying interviews, The Eyes of war remembers the forgotten, while at the same time transcending their individual stories of suffering. Former enemies from Germany, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Belgium, the Ukraine, and Russia are united in their fate as blind persons and victims of the war.
