Children of Exodus - the small adults

I know that the times are hard (especially after Paris & now Brussels) both for europeans and refugees/migrants, but if I put aside all the politics, my compassion to those who flee conflict or poverty, my confusion and hatred for suicide attacks - I'm trying to be a family man. So being a father of two, being a grown up looking back on my childhood I realized how much it affected me and created my personality. That makes me wonder how big the scars are going to be in the future on each child's mental health? Who is he or she's goin' to be? How to live as a child with all the experience from a warzone or the journey to a "better" world??? It makes me so sad, so depressed & I can't even imagine what is goin on in these kids mind.




I remember this family, they had four children (as far as I remember). One of them was seriously dissabled and needed medical help. His mother was crying, the father was taking care of the boy in silence with tears in his eyes. All they had was one bacpack. I was speechles.

This time something different. Couple of days ago I've been asked by my friend Piotr Hull to shoot the rehersal of his new spectacle R E M which will be played in the Polish National Opera in Warsaw. The best ballet artists (dancers) were hired to this project: Pawel Koncewoj, Yuka Ebihara, Anna Lorenc Bondara, Paulina Jurkowska, Polina Rusetskaya, Anka Herbut, Eliza Trautsolt-Walaszczyk, Marta Fiedler.

After winning the ellections in autumn 2015, rightsided PiS (Law & Justice party) started quickly changing many state reguliations. The New acts were voted in the middle of the night, lots of officials and regular employees in government agencies have been quickly changed. When PiS started changing the constitutional court to make it politicaly suitable for them - just like Viktor Orban's government did it in Hungary, citizens went out on the streets to give voice for their dissatisfaction for the new regulations. In December mr. Mateusz Kijowski founded the KOD - Democracy Defense Committee - the organization that is the main leader at the moment of the antigovernment movement & demonstrations.
