The second Egg in my egg-alphabet is entitled ‘A Common History‘. A coincidence that the first two eggs have the word history in their titles.
I’m not really sure what the meaning of this one is, but maybe I will reflect on it a bit more having posted it here. I’m certainly thinking a lot about the first egg, …an uncertain daily history, especially following on from Al‘s suggestion that it might represent the Holocaust?
There is definitely an image of a train with bars as windows, a tank, a symbol that could be the Star of David, and a rally with a leader in a train of cars with crowds of people around, although if that was supposed to represent Hitler I would have expected the man in the first car to look more like Hitler as he was an easy image to caricature.
