Moldova -
The resilience of the human spirit is a powerful thing, capable of withstanding a great deal of adversity and grief.

Many died along the way, but others later returned to their homelands and struggled to piece together the lives they knew before their suffering began.

Her deeply moving photographs provide a voice to the former deportees in an attempt to keep their stories alive.
