You who live safe
In your warm houses,
You who find, returning in the evening,
Hot food and friendly faces:
Consider if this is a man
Who works in the mud,
Who does not know peace,
Who fights for a scrap of bread,
Who dies because of a yes or a no.
Consider if this is a woman
Without hair and without name,
With no more strength to remember,
Her eyes empty and her womb cold
Like a frog in winter.

—Primo Levi, If This is a Man, 1947

Guangdong Times Museum has the pleasure to present Jiang Zhi: If This is a Man from April 28 to June 24, 2012.
