Antoine Lecharny : Sous terre (Underground)


This is one of the most poignant portfolios we have received.
It is signed Antoine Lecharny. Thanks to Renate Gallois Monbrun at the origin of this submission!

Sous terre, Buchach, Ukraine, January 2022

Under the earth, under the trees, under the pavement of the sidewalks, ruins of synagogues and graves full of bones. What we see on the surface replaces what we can no longer see. A city returned to its banality. The trees and snowy streets continue the erasure of bodies and names. Here, everything separates me from the depth of the place. The grasses are no longer charred, the bullets have disappeared and the turned over earth seems hardened by silence. Of the thousands of Jewish children, women and men taken by force to the hills of the city to be shot in the back of the head and piled on top of the naked bodies of those who came before them, almost nothing remains. no trace. Neither monument, nor repentance. Only a stone engraved and erected in the middle of the brambles, out of sight, escapes erasure.
