SUMMERHOUSE / GEERTJE BRANDENBURG
Some time ago, Geertje Brandenburg found some letters her grandfather wrote towards the end of his life. In them, he was retelling his time as a forced labourer in Germany between 1943 and 1945. She was, and still is, fascinated by how these experiences lingered in him after so many years. In January 2021, Geertje travelled to Germany, In an attempt to find what was left of her grandfathers past in her present. This publication is part of her journey to find a place for herself. It’s the (re)creation of memories and stories that, although oscillate between facts and fictions, hold warm truths.
