    It Comes at Night

    ★★★

    „Nach Auschwitz ein Gedicht zu schreiben, ist barbarisch“ (Adorno)
    (~To indite a poem after Auschwitz is a barbaric act.)

    The contradiction between falling silent in the face of the holocaust and the necessity to realize a understanding and reminder via representation seems to be insuperable.
