Type: “I saw this photo essay on the Internet of the Russian invasion of Georgia and Roza Injgia was photographed, newly-widowed, standing next to her husband Meria’s, suit laid out accross his bed; as if he were lying in it taking a rest. She seemed so worn out – undoubtedly due to a life of running from war after war. The apartment she was pictured in was their home of fifteen years: They came to Georgia seeking refuge from the Georgian-Abkhazian War back in 1993.
Running for their lives from one war would ironically and tragically cost Meira’s life in another war.
