Though it ended nearly 70 years ago, the horrors and lessons learned from World War II still stick with us today. The physical landscapes of the places that served as a setting for the international conflict changed significantly over the decades. However, the haunting past of the war still lingers. This photography project is a powerful reminder of that.

These image perfectly juxtapose the peace of the present with the powerful period of war. Its hard to believe both how much and how little things have changed over the past 70 years. I hope we will continue to learn from our terrible mistakes.
