Roemers, M.

The Never-Ending War.

QV Publishers, 2006



Photographer Martin Roemers portrayed 40 veterans from Germany, Russia, Poland, Belgium, Britain and the Netherlands for his project The Never-Ending War (2004 – 2005). His research question was whether veterans, regardless of their position on the ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ side, have more in common with each other than they do with differences. Five or six of the interviewees were Bronbeek residents. The main question was: what did you do during the war? Besides the portraits, photographs of World War II commemorations are also part of the project.

The interviews focus on events and experiences in the years 1945 – 1949.
They mainly discuss Indonesia and the Netherlands. Themes include Indonesian revolution, regret, trauma, survival.
