Tries verhaal/Sad story LO



Here are my pages for a Club Scrap challenge online. Not all stories have a happy end and here I scrapped a sad story:These are the parents of my MIL (you see her as a child in the picture on the left).These pictures are very special to her.All the time during WW2 she had them folded under her feet troughout all the camps (she was in 13!) she was in. After the war a photographer reconstructed these new photo's out of them. She has no other pictures, for her father was murdered in Auschwitz and her mother in Sobibor.Behind the pictures of her father and her mother (with the red ribbons) I have written their life stories (From Russia- her father and Poland - her mother were matched in Germany and went to Amsterdam, to die in Poland).But here she is, married, two children and both are married and have children of their own.
For these pages I used all paper and stamps of this new months kit, called Chapter 1. Great for stories and there are many more stories to tell!

The sad stories are sometimes the most important. I think it's wonderful that she has these photos, and the LO to tell the story!

Hetty, those are wonderfully done memories. These are precious. We must never forget.

This is a wonderful layout - I'm impressed by the way you made the stories available without taking away from the pictures. Very good!

This is an important story to preserve. It is ingenious how you kept the background stories available without taking away space from the pictures - this is a very special layout.
