Breaking through Painted-over-Windows ( Zamalowane okna )- photographer Anna Liminowicz examines the loss and pain the Ukrainian refugee crisis will have on future generations​​​


„Photojournalist Anna Liminowicz has been a key contributor to The Globe and Mail’s coverage of the war in Ukraine since Russia’s invasion on Feb. 24. Her award-winning photographs of the refugee crisis have put a human face on the conflict and have given Globe readers a unique perspective on it. For Ms. Liminowicz, watching millions of Ukrainians seek safety in Poland has had a deeper personal meaning.

On May 25, Ms. Liminowicz released a book titled Zamalowane Okna – or Painted-over Windows. It’s a portrait of Masuria told through the voices of those who experienced the region’s tortured history – Poles, Ukrainians, Germans. They speak of loss and pain, and what home means to them. She finished the book in February, just as the war in Ukraine broke out and just as she landed on the Polish border as part of the Globe’s reporting team.

Zamalowane Okna
By Anna Liminowicz Someone with a precise hand has created the illusion of frames and muntins, two rectangles of glass at the bottom and two squares at the top. The windowsills beneath them are real. From a distance the windows look as if someone has merely covered the panes with a dark curtain or painted over them, but it is an illusion. Time has added cracks to the painted panes – it is the wall that has cracked. It’s hard to believe that there never were any windows here.”

Thank you very much Paul Waldie for this conversation, for working together. It is a great pleasure!
