A Quasilife for All Time

by Yevgenyatyoo on May 28, 2011

This is yet more Jewish Holocaust requieum which adds another measure to the seemingly inexhaustable material of the German occupation of Czechoslovakia. Two lives are immortalized. Firstly, the life of a man on the lam from 'They' (German occupiers of Czechoslovakia) and, secondly, the inner vessel of a man's hopes and deams. Together, they form the automaton that is cunningly surviving in the shell of a town that has been systematically drained of its vigor, its inhabitants and its treasures. The river that runs through it has been immortalized by Smetana in the tone poem 'The Moldau'; but They who have touched and fingered without veneration the riches of this place have implacably changed it forever. It develops that kismet is apportioned to him at his haunting by Ruzena. Who is she? Is she with im? Why, or what, does she give him that which is excruciation when he discourses with her? All the while, 'They' are and remain an excrescence in their suzerainty.
