Memory has faces in mind

“Memory is like water: it is vital, and it finds its own way into new spaces and to other people. It is always specific: it has faces in mind, and places, and smells, and sounds. It has no expiry date, and it cannot be declared to be completed or finished by any kind of resolution or ruling.”

Noach Flug (1925-2011), survivor of the Auschwitz Concentration Camp and President of the International Auschwitz Committee
