[…]The musical selection symbolises the feelings, thoughts and dreams of love that this generation carried with it.

The images illustrating the CD are made by Frédéric PAUWELS who travelled along the 700 kilometers long Western front line, starting in Nieuwpoort, Belgium and ending in the French Vosges. He photographed the scars that the war left in the surrounding landscapes and revisited the trenches, numerous monuments and the so called “Villages dead for France”, polluted ghost towns where no one could ever live after the war.
