For the past three years, a secret yearly summer camp has been held for women and children who have been subject to domestic and honor violence in Sweden. The nature and beauty of the camp, which is organized by the Women’s Rights Association in Malmö, is meant to bring some sort of normalcy to their difficult lives. Children play and smile, some take a bath in the lake for the first time and mothers and children can do things together without being scared of what might happen to them. While the camp last only three days, the impression it leaves on its attendees is significant.
