Ireland 1847

Asenath Nicholson “When I stood in the burying-ground, I saw the brown silken hair of a young girl, waving gently through a little cleft of stones, that lay loosely upon her young breast. They had not room to put her beneath the surface, but slightly, and a little green grass was pulled and spread over, and then covered with stones. I never shall forget it.” Taken from The Truth Behind The Irish Famine, 100 images, eye witness quotes. Signed copies at:
