"Profession: Survivor" (2010)
This project has at its centre the life of war veterans from Romania with a special focus on what changes the war brought to them from a professional point of view. Most of them went from being farmers, blacksmiths, carpenters and teachers to infantry rifle shooters, scouts, communication technicians and even nurses. People that had done some training before could be taken into higher positions like officers and doctors, but that didn’t guarantee that they wouldn’t be sent on the front. Many of these people lost their families during the war and had to start from scratch again, not mentioning that some had problems finding a job and readjusting to work again.
For her project, Loredana- Diana Basalic was awarded second prize in the Romanian History competition from 2010.
