Looking Through A Child's Eyes

Looking Through a Child's Eyes. The historical children's art collection at the very well maintained Papa Ink : the International Gallery of Children's Art features child drawings from many relevant events. Some of particular interest are Witness to Genocide: Children of Rwanda, holocaust drawings from the Jewish Ghetto in Terezin, treatment of women under the Taliban in Afganistan, and remnants from medieval Russia from a boy named Onfim.

Being a total cynic here, but how easy would it be to make all this up?

"Academics" have committed much more elaborate and devious frauds in the past.

Bell Labs, Hitler Diaries, Binjamin Wilkomirski, Jack the Ripper Diary. You name it.

Like I said, just being cynical. Not saying it ain't so.

Damn, that is cynical...

But fraud or not, Onfim's pictures are cool...

They still draw pictures, drawings by children during the Spanish Civil War.

This is a great link.... and perhaps I wasn't supposed to giggle, but I did...I couldn't help it. Some of this stuff is really funny. Especially this one, this one, , and this one.
