"Frauen, deren Namen ich nicht weiß,
deren Umstände ich nicht gelernt habe.
Frauen, deren Energie und Kreativität ich absorbiert habe
Frauen, die ich getroffen habe und nun verehre
Ihnen gilt meine Dankbarkeit"
Text eines Videos von Quang Nguyen Huy, 2005

"Women, whose names i do not know,
whose circumstances i have not learned.
Women whose energy and creativity i have absorbed
Women i have met and now honour
To them i give my gratitude"
