I Am Alive. How Children Survived A Century of Wars.
“I Am Alive” can mean I have survived. I live well. Or I live with my terrible memories. All of these meanings can be found in this photobook. In an almost cinematic matter it chronicles the life of 11 people who lived through some of the past century´s most devastating conflicts as a child. From WWI to the Syrian War, photographer Dominic Nahr captures the hope, trauma, strength and kindness of the protagonists through a diverse photographic narrative. In this way, Save the Children presents a book about children in war that puts resilience and joy de vivre at the center.
