Last week, one of our most recent Kartogram clients was featured in the New York Times. Silvia Foti is a journalist, creative writer, and teacher based in the USA. Originally from Lithuania, Silvia was tasked to revisit her roots following an unexpected request from her mother - to take on the task of researching and writing her grandfather’s story.
Silvia’s grandfather, Jonas Noreika, is a well-known war hero in Lithuania - a figure who was well-respected and has had streets, plaques, and even a school named in his honour. It wasn’t until she discovered a single document during her research that things changed forever.
Silvia was forced to rethink the scope of her narrative and reconsider the reputation of her grandfather in Lithuania. Learning important lessons about the importance of recounting history and honouring the truth, her forthcoming book The Nazi’s Granddaughter: How I learned my Grandfather was a War Criminal seeks to explain the true position of war hero Jonas Noreika within the politics of World War II.
Kartogram completed Silvia’s custom Wordpress website back in December 2020. As one of the main platforms for promoting her book, Silvia was looking for a clean and professional design across the website - hoping that this would help her to promote her writing in the United States.
The Kartogram team are delighted to see that Silvia is achieving her goals and is beginning to share her work around the world. We’re also very proud that our custom web design has played a part in Silvia’s story.
