The Power of Documentation

This is what we simply do in “Description of Alexandria” and that is the power of documentation:

Yves Congar: Congar was born in Sedan in northeast France in 1904. His father Georges Congar was a bank manager. Congar’s hometown was occupied by the Germans for much of World War I, and his father was among the men deported by the Germans to Lithuania. Upon the urging of his mother, Lucie Congar née Desoye (called “Tere” by Yves throughout his life), Congar recorded the occupation in an extensive series of illustrated diaries which were later published. They provide a unique historical insight into the war from a child’s point of view.
