During the bombardment of Iraq in 2003 thousand tons of depleted uranium ammunition dropped on cities like Basra and Fallujah and their inhabitants. After the Gulf War, the cancer quota rose, and every day, malformed children are born.

The exhibition “Depleted Uranium – The Silent Genocide?” was selected for Berlin Fotofestival’s multimedia special “Explore New Media”.
