The cigarette


Recently, a giant photograph showing Italian judges Falcone and Borsellino, both killed by the mafia in 1992 had been hung on the walls of the Palazzo di Giustizia of Milan. But it was censored, as Falcone was holding a cigarette in his hands; therefore someone thought it was better to hide it (see this article). I hope I won’t have to censor my photographs, as smoking was much more common during the war! This photograph was taken in Tréveray (Meuse, France) around 1917-1918. And I must admit these soldiers seem to be very happy to have a break!
