Facing the war

70 years after WWII, there were few people in Donetsk who still remembered living through war, seeing atrocities committed in the name of fascism or how hard it was to restore peace. Those same veterans, now in their twilight years, watch in dismay as younger generations fail to resolve their differences peacefully and resort to military action. Once again, young people fight, die, and lay buried beside those who gave their lives for peace in WWII.
