Thionville, France
Unidentified sanctuary
09 Thionville, France

These six shards represent a small town, any small town. This panel speaks for all the little places and ordinary people that will never be remembered. It is like a satellite photo—perhaps of the roofs of a small village, perhaps a strategic complex. Fred had driven through this town many times, and then suddenly all was gone. His memories and this pseudo-photo offer the hope that we can, by bearing witness, keep such places alive.
