Photographer's Note

In predominantly Catholic countries such as Poland, Slovenia, Lithuania, Hungary and Slovakia, All Saints’ Day on November 1 is a public holiday. Practicing Catholics are required to participate in Mass. And then, both religious and non-religious people crowd into cemeteries to honor their dead relatives and also long-departed heroes of their respective nation’s history. Even in countries where All Saints’ Day is not a public holiday, such as the Czech Republic, masses of people visit cemeteries, and government officials will turn part of the day into a secular remembrance.
