I revisited the Rivesaltes memorial in September, still sends shivers down my spine, the barbed wire is still there, you just can't imagine what must have gone on behind the lines.....well you can, but choose not to, so, so sad. :(
Laugh when you can, apologize when you should, and let go of what you can't change.
Life's too short to be anything... but happy.

Hi all

Filming is taking place, based on the sad journey of the Spanish refugees to Argeles.
Hopefully destined for French television
