  1. Very poignant. Children are so vulnerable, yet they can be so resilient, though they shouldn’t have to be. I am sure everyone’s thoughts are with the Ukrainian people during these times.

    Photos like this one help tell the story. Thank you, Pavel.

    1. Thank you for your kind words and feedback, Don, it mean a lot to me. This is indeed one of the central focuses of my series – how this conflict affects children in various ways.


    1. Indeed, it is a very disquieting time, especially if you live in CEE. Many of the refugees have escaped to Poland, and we have about 300,000 in Czechia. Others have gone to countries such as Switzerland, Germany etc., where they have relatives or friends who are able to help them. The impression I’ve got from talking to some of them is that they don’t really want to be here and miss their homes. Many sigh and say, “I just want to go back to x.” All very sad ….

  2. Thank you, Joe 🙂 Yes, indeed, I have deep admiration and respect for them and how they’re handling this. Especially when you see these children, who are quiet and well behaved after their entire world has been uprooted. I think the west can learn a lot from them.

  3. This is a very powerful image Pavel. These Ukrainian women and children are showing the world what the definition of bravery is. My heart goes out to all of them.
