August's Places

My sister's husband has been waiting for humanitarian right to stay in Austria since August 2020.
Due to unfortunate circumstances, he lost his residence permit in the entire Schengen area. This event prompted me to travel through the very places he passed through - all the way to the Austrian border and to reflect on what happened in the paralyzing heat of August. Who and what makes history, what is visible, what is not? Despite my revolting feelings about the repeated injustices in these landscapes, I have tried to retell the traced memories with distance and without resentment.
