His contribution consists of three parts: in the first two originally French parts, only some of the words are legible in their English translation (or in original German), while the rest of the original can be deciphered from underneath the grey bars that cover it, so that the entire context can be decoded by the reader only through a continuous back and forth between languages and visibility and invisibility.
