‘It looked like black confetti’ The ashes falling down the sky after the WWII bombardment of Rotterdam seen trough the eyes of a child. For the opening of an exhibition about WWII, I’ve asked the National resistance museum for original war recipes. We prepared the dishes according to the recipes but served them as hors ‘d oeuvres. Some survivors of the war (children back then) came and tasted the food. They didn’t taste this food in over 60 years. Some food brought back forgotten memories of that time. For me it was a very emotional, but precious project.
