The monument, the tower, the film

The upper photo shows you the skeletal tower of what was originally an observation tower on what is now called the Old Fairgrounds, which were constructed just before the outbreak of WWII.  Afterwards, the fairgrounds were turned into a Nazi concentration camp. I've shown you the tower and the monument before.

The lower photo shows director Goran Paskaljevic's latest film, When Day Breaks (Kad Svane Dan), a partially true story (the main character is based on Paskaljevic's co-writer, Filip David's experiences) of a man who suddenly discovers his true identity and that his real parents had died in the camp.  You can read more about this film right here.

The last photo is also a shameless plug on my part. I did the English subtitles, so if it comes to your theater, hang around and read the credits.  :-)


 Like the new green grass around him, this fellow looks like he's growing new hair.  I remember how happy I was to see my own new growth...
