I was there. I saw the shoes. The truth is that I shot a lot of things. I wanted to document as much as possible. But the shoes. They were not in a glass cupboard like the rest of the things. They were in a pile, behind a rope. A touch away from me. A pile of shoes. And I could smell the dry skin, but I could smell the stench of death, the dry sweat, the skin of the feet of their dead owners. 70 years and the smell, the stench, is still there. First I fell to the floor crying. Then I vomited in my throat. I vomited the hear later on even more. I vomited my hear now even when I had to choose whether to upload all the pictures or just one. And this is the picture that made me the sharpest memory - because it is not memory - it is reality. The shoes are real - like everything that happened 70 years ago. Do not let anyone lie to you - that they should not mislead you - I was there. I saw, smelled, died with them. And returned with a terrible memory.
