VICTIM OF WAR
Men who start wars do not live to experience the aftermath
They escape by death at their own hand ar at the hand of the opposition.
For victims, war is much worse after the last shot is fired.
Wartime fears experienced during bombing raids, and physical attacks by strangers are exchanged for the horror of lost protection, the anguish of starvation, the deprivation of loved ones, and the loss of meaningful life.
Victims of war are bequeathed fear, loneliness, suffering, and uncertainty, but endure to teach future generations the lessons they have learned the hard way.
Shades of War explores the lives of families in the United States, The Netherlands and Germany during World War II and traces the post war years and the residual effects of war-time experiences on those that endured.
