“Frente al Silencio” [In Front of Silence] is an attempt to break the complicit silence that underpins the barbarity human beings are capable of inflicting on one another. Félix Grande was able to break this silence with his poem “La Cabellera de la Shoá” [Shoah’s Hair]. This work lays bare the horror of Auschwitz – the poet’s fragmented language revealing his truth.
Elimination, dehumanization, contempt, and terror – but also reflection, condemnation, and the search for a language capable of narrating the turmoil – all of these elements are an attempt to be one yet more echo of Grande’s poem.
