Verdun, France
A Synagogue, a Protestant Church, a Catholic Church
07 Verdun, France

In 1944, Verdun was already a shrine to the ravages of World War I. Fred’s envelope from Verdun contained three shards from three different places of worship. I put them together as improbable and endlessly repeating notes on a fictitious sheet of music. They serve as a warning about history repeating itself and also the longed-for possibility of coexistence and harmony.
