Families look on as two soldiers place corpses in wooden coffins in the foreground.

[Family members look on as the corpses of their loved ones are placed in simple wooden coffins. Florina, Greece, 1949.] "In Florina, when a man is dead, though killed by rebel fire, there are few tears upon the faces even of those who loved him best. For these tears must be drawn from wells now almost dry . . . Tears? Like the villagers themselves, very few are left." Yankee Nomad, p. 276.
