This poster is one of the few whose people are saying first glance, "it’s beautiful! ". I explain to them what it is, asking in the first place to tell me what it reminds to them (people often speak of a view of the earth by air or satellite). This is the truth of a photograph taken in a gas chamber in the Majdanek camp (Poland). This is a detail of a wall and the effects of the gas on the plaster. There is something terrible to think that this instrument of death created beauty, at least it is thus called before knowing what it means.
