Photographer's Note

Small church of Repose of the Virgin on Volotovo Field near Novgorod. It was built in year 1352 by Archbishop Moisey, severely damaged by German artillery during WW II. Church was repaired in 1990-s by Ministry of Culture of Russia and German company "Wintershall".
This was made as a sign of the final end of all kinds of bad blood and using of history for political means between two countries.
And that's how the history, even most gruesome and sad, have to be treated: as history.
