When Pravda was the truth

N. Lygeros

Translated from the Greek by Evi Charitidou

- Why do you pay so much attention on what you eat?
- Because I can’t forget the people who weren’t eating.
- Who weren’t eating?
- The Ukrainians!
- Don’t you lie! Genocide doesn’t exist!
- But, I didn’t talk about genocide!
- That would be your next words!
- And how do you know?
- The party told us this…
- Which party? What did it tell you?
- You are becoming vulgar! The party tells us only the truth.
- Since when?
- Since history died!
- So, what happened in 1933?
- Nothing happened. The crop was one of the best.
- They reaped humans not cobs.
- You are dealing with details.
- Millions of details.
- It doesn’t matter.
- What does matter?
- System’s immortality!
- Truth is not a single newspaper.
- Be careful!
- Will you nail me?
- Don’t pick up a cross, if you don’t want to get nailed.
- History is unique.
- And the sins many.
- Punishment is unique as well.
- But the crimes many. You’ve become an enemy of the system.
- I had no choice.
- Stop it! Things are not funny.
- Why?
- You are accused of high treason.
- Due to my talking of Holodomor?
- Due to your believing in the nonexistent.
- It’s you who have created the nonexistent humanism!
- Lie!
- Nobody else could resist your orgy!
- Shut up! Execute him!
- Here the limits of dialectical materialism!
- Fire!
Taras drops dead.
