There’s a broken camera on ebay I pulled my whole paycheck to buy. The lens is cracked, but it’s the exact same camera my grandmother used to photograph her village when WWII broke out. I checked.

Grandma was a seamstress, but she dreamed of selling her photos. Only a couple of her images have survived to today, pressed lovingly in my crackled album. She stole the camera from the German reporter who turned in her best friend, a Polish refugee. At some point, she had to sell it.

I figured it was time to take back what she rightfully stole.
