"The Birkenau Park"

It's spring of 1963 in "Auschwitz" Poland, a country devastated by the Second World War, which still suffers the vicissitudes of death and destruction.

Eva Covenitt, survivor of the Nazi holocaust, wanders through the park "Birkenau", former concentration camp. She is mentally ill, does not know about her family, is 27 years old and her pale face reflects something very dark.

While walking through the park, she is incinerated by sharp memories that pierce her already atrophied mind, and even the spring with her purple flowered floor, softens her steps.

The young woman without horizon does not know what time it is, the loneliness and the night surprises her in the middle of her clumsy and slow walk; when a cold white smoke raises her skirt; the smell of puckered human flesh penetrates through his nostrils. It seems that he recognizes it, she was 7 years old when smelled her mother burning in the midst of living and dead bodies, that's why his eyes open out widening more than usual.

A scream from beyond the grave comes from her mouth, and from the dimness of the shadows, she can see an infant standing in front of her. It is her mother as a child, who with a stretched arm invites her to cross the threshold of death.

Eva smiles and accepts the invitation, but in trying to take the child, everything fades, leaving only a Nazi swastika engraved with his initials and the date of her death.

"Eva Covenitt Monsat, Jew No. 4066, 1943."
