Primo Levi - Final Day

Final day because even if the deadline is midday Friday, I really don't think that I want to spend too much more time on this.  The process is just horrendous, lots of footage and personal accounts.  I am moaning about dreadful nightmares, yet I have only just read about it - I haven't personally experienced or seen the buildings today.  Fellow colleagues now want to see the place.  I couldn't stomach it, coward that I am.  I just want to write a good essay and stand up for those who suffered in it, regardless of nationality.

Genocide - an ugly word and it still happens all over the world today.

Have 140 words to lose - have paced the office and at last minute, my eyes spy an Art Spiegleman book.  Is it possible to smuggle Maus in there somehow, or should I perish the thought? Is that a flash of brilliance, or a step of stupidity too far? It would not trivialise the work....hmm

The bloody assignment is finally done - thank God!  Itching to upload it now, but should really do it tomorrow so I can proof read it with fresh eyes (not that I haven't read it over at least 10 times).

EDIT:::Uploaded - couldn't wait to get shot of it.
