The UnEarthingProject:

Fort IX, Kaunas / Lithuania, December 25, 1943

Photographic reencactment of the largest successful Jewish mass escape during World War II when about 60 prisoners escaped during the night of December 25, 1943 from Fort IX in Kaunas/Lithuania.

Inspiration for the project came from the book Heroism & Bravery in Lithuania 1941-1945 by Alex Faitelson, back then the 20 year old organiser of the escape.
