t is the smothered scream of a woman who is about to die, the last thought-river towards her husband, same destiny in another direction. It’s a poignant holocaust monologue written by Marcello Galati, journalist and author of books and theatrical works, performed on stage in voice and soul, in words and music, by actress Tiziana Risolo and guitarist Felicia Toscano. The agonized moments lived in the gas chamber, the feelings before the crematorium become on stage the mirror of the protagonist's mental labyrinth: thoughts, doubts, desires in oxygen debt, the latest of a life stripped away from her. Feelings just imagined... No one ever came out alive from those death rooms "... At Auschwitz: come in through the gate and get out of the chimney..." a sentence whose meaning will only be clear at the end.
