Memory in a time of forgetfulness

On April 25, 2015, the great Gorkha earthquake caused a massive chunk of Langtang Lirung to break off and fall, striking a glacier, releasing tons of debris and burying an entire village under 100 metres of rock, ice and mud. In a matter of seconds, Langtang, which had once been a thriving, picturesque village of more than 100 homes, ceased to exist. Over 300 people lost their lives. Memory in a time of forgetfulness
