DESCRIPTION

August, 1938. Paris is a city living on its nerves and the threat of war hangs heavy as a distant thunderstorm on a summers day. British actress, Clara Vine, is in Paris to film her latest movie, having left Berlin under a cloud. Joseph Goebbels has become increasingly suspicious that Clara has been mingling in Berlin society and passing snippets of information to her contacts in the British Embassy. It would have been absurd, if it hadn't also been true. With war becoming increasingly likely, Clara is approached by an undercover British operative, Guy Hamilton, who asks her to perform a task for her country: to befriend Eva Braun, Hitler's girlfriend, and to pass on any information she can gather.Clara knows that to undertake this task is to put herself back in danger. But she also knows that soon she may have to do everything in her power to protect her country.

Gold changes hands, and the master of the House of Hellebore gives an order: 'War is coming. The child must die.' In our own world ...

Enemies included the city-states of Tlaxcala, Huejotzingo, and Cholula in the Tlaxcala-Pueblan Valley in central Mexico. The Flowers of War The Flowers of War began as a project to uncover, perform, discuss and celebrate the music and art that people used to cope with the horror of war.

This collaborative work of art comprises enamelled floral emblems of remembrance, inspired by those found on the battlefield and at home.
