After the Zagreb earthquake

Days after the Zagreb earthquake, firefighters and other workers are still repairing damage downtown. The situation is made even more difficult because of the quarantine due to the corona virus. Old chimneys are being demolished and the remains of buildings that threaten citizens are being removed. Many buildings are sealed and prohibited from entrance. The streets are empty and people are only out to get groceries and medicine. Cars are parked in open spaces due to the danger of buildings still colappsing and more earthquakes happening. A wool heart appears on one of the cracked buildings, an installation by artist, and becomes a symbol of hope and messages that the city will heal and rebuild. A message that is reported all over the world and can be interpreted on a much global level.
