To build the future while occulting passes it, while omitting to point out these tears of our common history to us would be to deny the existence of Europe and thus the possibility of building a common future.

These demons are till too present in front of my eyes, that I try to observe through a voyage by train between Poznan and Birkenau. These photographs are the echo of my memory, an echo photographic which continues after the light is put on.
