Many Georgians like Nino Shergelia live in a past they cannot find closure for. And as the country inches forward in a suspended state between conflict and peace, both young and old struggle to move on.

Jeremy’s story, Frozen War, is an anthology of memories and dreams that Georgians have shared in their recollections of a past they are unwilling to let go, in their poignant thoughts about life, and in their tenacious march into the future. They hold dreams as their shields in a country still suspended in a vexing predicament that is neither war nor peace.

The International Committee of the Red Cross, which sponsored the trip to Georgia, has also released an edited excerpt of Frozen War (3,000 words).
