Prisoner’s words on the Fresnes prison’s walls

Le Temps des médias n°4, printemps 2005, p.90-100

With a keen interest for the peripheral effects of war and concerned by the fate of its prisoners, Henri Calet undertook in 1945 to study the graffiti on the prison walls of Fresnes prison, last testament of the lives of resistance fighters that faced condemnation, deportation or execution. The results of his investigation have been published in Combat, France-Soir, Hommes et Monde, Evidences. His work on these fragile traces of lives that were concealed from the public eye stands as evidence against the continued denial by the guilty parties and fights against the erosion of collective memory.
