When one walks on Pont Mirabeau in Paris, one sees a reduced replica of the Statue of Liberty. Quite an ironic sight, since three Romanian-Jewish writers have liberated themselves on this very bridge. In the 30s, Mihail Sebastian (Iosef M. Hechter) found here a lost notebook which he used in his first fiction diary / novel Fragments from a Found Notebook. On the same bridge, but in 1970, the poet Paul Celan (Paul Antschel) committed suicide by plunging into the Seine river. 24 years after, in 1994, the poet Ghérasim Luca (Salman Locker) ended his life in the same manner, leaving a recorded note which stated: “In this world, poets have no place!”.
