”In december 2012, I found about thirty postcards from a distant past. They were written by Oscar, my great grand uncle, and sent from the war front during the Great War to his sister, my great grand mother. He wrote about boredom, about his worries and his daily life in the trenches. An ordinary soldier, telling about ordinary stuff in an extraordinary context. “ Clément Béraud
