Setting: Broken gates of concentration camp. Russian soldier greets small group of male prisoners.
Russian: I liberate you...!
Man: Liberate yourself!
Man: Good. A word we expect to hear a lot of in the days to come.
Russian: I...I liberate...
Man: We are free men. You cannot liberate us.
Russian: But you are prisoners.
Man: A house may have walls, doors, gates but I am still a free man there.
Russian: But you cannot leave the camp. You can leave a house.
Man: I see you have never married! (Group laughs)
Man: Look my friend. You cannot liberate that which knows itself to be free.
Russian bows. Leaves.
