Freiburg: A Series of Illustrations

During World War II, the Freiburg Münster (cathedral) withstood an aerial bombing that destroyed most of the surrounding old city; damages to the Münster included the collapse of the tiled roof and broken windows. The people of Freiburg (mostly women and children, who were not off fighting) repaired the building with donated tiles and saved the interior from exposure to the elements. I was inspired to explore the symbolic and emotional nature of this story when living in Freiburg last year.
