How beautiful the world could be!

In the summer of 2017, I visited Majdanek concentration camp on the outskirt of Lublin in Poland and took these series of photos.
Later that year I was reading”Man’s search for meaning” written by Dr. Viktor Frankl one of the survival of the concentration camps and I came across this paragraph:
    “…One evening, when we were already resting on the floor of our hut, dead tired, soup bowls in hand, a fellow prisoner rushed in and asked us to run out to the assembly grounds and see the wonderful sunset. Standing outside we saw sinister clouds glowing in the west and the whole sky alive with clouds of ever-changing shapes and colours, from steel blue to blood red. The desolate grey mud huts provided a sharp contrast, while the puddles on the muddy ground reflected the glowing sky. Then, after minutes of moving silence, one prisoner said to another, “How beautiful the world could be!”

Happy Nowruz

I had the opportunity to meet Pascal Antonin a French musician and songwriter last year. He was very interested in Iranian culture and specifically in Nowruz celebration.

Here is the song he wrote to celebrate the new year with us and performs it with very talented and professional French Canadian guitar player Thierry Bégin-Lamontagne. We record this video at Cafe Aunja. A very nice Persian cafe in Montreal.




Un jour je m’en irai en Iran
Voir le plus beau pays d’Orient
Un jour je m’en irai à Téhéran
Voir l’été, l’automne, l’hivers, le printemps

Nowroz mobarac
Nowroz, nowroz mobarac
Nowroz mobarac
Nowroz, nowroz…

یک روز به ایران میرم
و زیباترین کشور شرق رو می بینم
یک روز به تهران می رم
و بهار، تابستان، پاییز و زمستان رو می بینم
نوروز مبارک
