Chronicles of a Provisional Planet [Chronique d’une planet provisoire]

Author(s): Armand Gatti
Influenced by science fiction literature, Gatti presents astronauts who travel to a planet that has been almost impossible for humans to understand. On that planet, they discover striking similarities to our own human suffering, barbaric war, and the Holocaust. The audience is presented with various events from around this provisional planet that highlight the parallels to occurrences during the Holocaust and characters who are reminiscent of the key leaders of the Third Reich and the Final Solution.
