Trier, Germany
Liebfrauenkirche (Church of Our Lady)
18 Trier, Germany

Having been born and raised in Trier, Germany, it is an honor to be involved in this project and to work with shards from the Liebfrauenkirche.

Armelle sent me the glass shards Fred had collected, his description of what he saw, and two photographs of him in the church, looking at the destruction. I combined the photos to create this image of what Chaplain McDonald witnessed.

It is my hope that this memorial artwork will help us see more clearly what people went through during the war. With understanding and respect for each other, change continues to be possible.
