The six-page typed document contains the eyewitness account of General Adolf Heusinger describing the events of July 20th, 1944. Heusinger was in the Wolf’s Lair, standing next to Adolf Hitler when a bomb contained in a suitcase, planted by Claus von Stauffenberg, exploded, killing four men and injuring Hitler himself.

The overall plot to overthrow Hitler and take control of the German military was a modification of an official plan to continue government operations in the event of a breakdown in civil order. The plan was named “Unternehmen Walküre”, or “Operation Valkyrie”.

The installation consists of 200 fibreglass doves. Each dove carries a Saudi Arabian permission document which allows women to travel. These documents are issued by the male guardians of Saudi women, and are required for unaccompanied travel.

The documents in the installation were donated by journalists, scientists, artists, and other leaders in Saudi society, from the ages of six months to 60 years.
