La Montre

Il nous disait qu’elle avait appartenu au chef du camp de concentration de Ravensbrück. Jacqueline Péry, qui y avait été déportée en 1944 venait parfois à la maison et nous racontait ce qui se passait dans ce camp de concentration.

About Guy de Montlaur

Autoportrait by Guy de Montlaur

I want to shout: “Just look! Look at the mystery! It is piercing your eyes.”

And no one sees it. Nobody but myself. People see colours, shadows, lights, forms. They see (what do I know?) the canvas, the stretcher nails. And I don’t understand they can’t guess all the distress here, under their eyes, as it was during the war: the clamour, death, love, treachery; the lies and the fear. And still more that I cannot say, but I know how to do it.

Yes I say: I know how to do it.
