Relics of time

Relics of time preserve their history, known only to some. Objects that became brooches (a key, a piece of bark, a fragment of brick from a Jewish house) are an inseparable part of my birthplace and my childhood. A key found around the house that keeps its history and what is presumably no longer there. A withered plum tree planted by my great-grandfather that reminds me of the delicious plums I ate in childhood. The Jewish architectural legacy preserves not only the tragic events but also the community of the region, the many witty stories passed down by word of mouth. These are In situ signs.
