At the age of sixty, Helena Broder embarked in a poignant journey. She escaped Vienna to seek refuge in Chile, leaving shortly after the Night of Broken Glass in 1938, when the Nazi regime unleashed a campaign of violence, terror, and destruction against the Jewish population.

The work takes us on a journey through time and space, and across thresholds between life, death and dreams to discover Helena´s lost voice. This is not a linear journey, but one that braids together the past, the present and the future, giving Helena a third home in the liminal space of literary and visual memory. A place where her “exhausted suitcase” can finally rest.

The poems by Marjorie Agosin, Helena´s great-granddaughter, dialogue with the photographs of Samuel Shats to provoke an enhanced aesthetical experience.
