Interview with Henri Lavrillat (*1920) who recalls his compulsory work service at Cap Ferret and in Bordeaux during the Second World War and talks about my photographic collection "Disappearance – The Atlantic Wall around Cap Ferret", which was the starting point for this interview.

A film by Markus Oberndorfer, created with the help of Céline Foulon. Dedicated to Henri Lavrillat. Thank you to all that took part; for their trust from the beginning and for this extraordinary experience of being able to plunge into the memories of one of the last living contemporary war witnesses.
