and they were writing their history

Translation of Bruno Durocher’s Et l’homme blanc ecrivait son histoire…

The first time I saw this book, I thought I would love to do something with it—and even then I conceived of a translation.

Several years later, the opportunity presented itself at the ten-year anniversary of Durocher’s death.

Heartbreaking book. With text from Durocher recounting his harrowing life in concentration camps. Elegant and simple, yet incredibly effective and powerful.
