VIGTIGT AT VIDE OM LUDMILLA – IMPORTANT TO KNOW ABOUT LUDMILLA

BY GAZAN, SISSEL-JO

The girl Ludmilla lives in the town of Mines, perhaps in the Balkans, with no memory of her youth. She falls head over heels in love with the mysterious Ivor, but when he suddenly disappears, Ludmilla flees in her despair to the island of Mathyra.

Ivor’s story is a cruel one. Far too young, he had been sent to war, and along with other soldiers, he had stolen, murdered, and committed rape throughout the country. They had taken a young girl with them, whom they exploited in every way: Ludmilla. However, Ivor escapes from the group and ends up after many years driven around on the same island, Mathyra, where he can finally write his story, and Ludmillas.
