'From the age of ten, and until she was fifteen, Mira dreamt the very same dream almost every night. Once she had exhausted her days with study and games, she would nod off and go to a big black island surrounded by stagnant water and decay. There was nothing on that ghostly piece of land, apart from metallic oak trees, their tops full of mature, glistening acorns and sharp stones.' More
'In her dream, Mira would walk around this place for a long time, realising that she was alone on the island. The moment she started wondering how to escape, a soldier would appear out of the blue. He was tall and blond, and wore a German uniform, but without a helmet. She had seen many people like him in partisan movies, only this one didn't have a gun. He looked somewhat tame, with an almost lost look in his eyes.'
