Description

On 11 November 1918, more than four years of war were finally over. But it was not the end of the suffering for the populations of the nations involved in the War. Death, grief, distress from the lost of belongings and hunger continued to dominate people’s lives. An Allied embargo meant that initially very little food made it to Luxembourg, and later on none at all. In his “Black Market” scene, Pierre Blanc gives a very realistic depiction of the situation of foraging, whereby people got their hands on the things they needed to live, both during and after the War. It is a snapshot of a situation that for many people at the time was essential for survival.
