Katell picks us up at our hotel in Albi, France and off we go to Lacaze with Katell behind the wheel and Kristine navigating.
The air is cool
the sun is shining
and the scenery is exquisite.
About an hour later, we round the curve
and we are at Lacaze, greeted with our country’s flag
and a sign to let us and others who will come later
know we are at the right place.
There are tears
at this first hint of the hospitality to come.
I will be writing the only way I can right now: in blurts, snippets, and bits – we’ll call them postcards, why don’t we – that won’t necessarily be presented in chronological order, but as they rise to the surface of my heart. Which means you’ll receive these postcards all out of order, just as if I put a stamp on them and sent them through the postal service. That is how I will tell you about the first major European exhibit in Lacaze, France.
Now if you’d like to know more about The 70273 Project and help commemorate these people who deserved to live, here are some links you might be interested in:
