titles: The Man Who Stopped Time
Greece, 1922
But not the Greece you know.
Beyond the picture lies the camp.
We know only this for sure
no matter how far we go
we will never leave this place.

The man with the fedora
wears a Red Cross
so he can stop time.

Watch as he moves
between our still lives
the only one here
whom memory has not forgotten.
