Serendipity led Yuri and the documentary fi lm team to an abandoned jewish school in eastern Slovakia, where time had stood still since the day in 1943 when all those attending it were taken away to the camps… the school books all still there, essay notebooks with corrections, school reports, even the sugar still in the cupboard…

These decaying books lying on dusty shelves; the last witnesses of a once thriving culture, are treated by Yuri like the survivors that they each are – every one captured as a portrait, preserved in their fi nal beauty, pictures speaking a thousand words.
