Passant Souviens-toi

Passer-by, remember

“I can feel the sufferings of millions and yet, if I look up into the heavens, I think that it will all come right, that this cruelty too will end, and that peace and tranquillity will return again.” (Anne Frank, July 15th 1944)

It’s not to provoke, but to evoke: emotion, remembrance and consciousness. It’s because I wanted to create a monument; one you can wear, to remind yourself, and those around you.
