Arius van Tienhoven was a Dutch doctor who served during the Balkan wars and the First World War in several Red Cross missions. During these missions he took many pictures and they give a rare insight in these kind of missions and of life in general during these years.
During the First World War Arius worked together with Archibald Reiss, a German-Swiss criminology-pioneer, forensic scientist, professor and writer, in a commission which was investigating the war crimes of the Austro-Hungarian army committed in Serbia in 1914 and 1915.
Beside the many publications from professor Jelica Novaković-Lopušina from the Dutch language section of the Belgrade university, soon a new publication from dr.Vladimir Krivošejev (working for the National Museum in Valjevo and professor on the faculty of communication & culture) will be published:
Створене да сведоче / Taken to testify / Foto ‘s genomen als getuige
-photos by Arius van Tienhoven from the Balkan Wars 1912-1916
The PDF file of this book is already available to download for free via the following link: Створене да сведоче / Taken to testify / Foto ‘s genomen als getuige -Vladimir Krivosejev
