-- A day spent on the grounds of Terezin in the Czech Republic allowed me to feel the space for what it was, and reflect on what it told me. The fortress is surrounded by a mass of brick walls, paradoxically creating a large star. This maze-like town and adjacent prison gave me the feeling that the walls were transparent, that all action within them could be seen, and the deep underground complexities of the community there were treacherous to say the least.
