As a part of study project we interviewed Ukrainian children who fled the war and are now living in Latvia. Then we turned their stories into comics, to show their experiences and struggles through art, to save their memories and hopefully to have some fun while drawing together.
I met Nastya, 10 years old girl, who is dealing with insomnia for more than a year now. Although many children are well protected from terrible news and their parents try their absolute best to make their childhood as normal as possible, the terror still reaches them in different ways.
