A profoundly moving collection of unforgettable photographs from conflict zones around the world Paul Grabhorn's stunning four-color photographs tell an amazing, essential story—one of hope in the face of violence and deplorable conditions, of dignity in the midst of degradation, of light in the darkness of war and suffering. Taken on his travels with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), Grabhorn's captivating images allow readers to witness the activities that occur every day in places that the rest of the world has forgotten or has chosen to ignore. In war-torn countries such as Chechnya, Bosnia, Croatia, and Somalia, the humanitarian work Grabhorn documents is a testament to human compassion and community. Here are the helpers, quietly working day to day to alleviate the suffering of those caught up in conflict wherever it erupts. In many parts of the world, hope may sometimes seem in short supply. Grabhorn's photographs are an inspiring reminder of the resiliency and the unlimited capacity of the human spirit.
