I came across discarded diaries from 1959 on a flea market in east Berlin. Each day contains a list of words written mostly in pencil. Each word is crossed out. Each day is crossed out. Day after day, month after month, year after year the same, not one day is empty. Not one piece of written text is legible. The only access to this man's life are printed inserts to remind him of birthdays and his anniversary. , Artefacts and belongings that were once in daily use that have since been abandoned provide a glimpse, but only a glimpse, of a person's life or a place in time. Inaccessible and all but forgotten.
