Once again I have no idea what this is. I found it in Vienna’s Lange Gasse between Josefstädter Straße and Schmidgasse. I is a quarter of a circle, metal with thorns, held by metal stands, knee-high. I found it in a corner where one house recedes behind the other.
The Story of the Day is actually two of them, and in a way they’re both the same. The Guardian reports a case of “Parents jailed for torturing disabled girl” and CNN titles “Frozen toddler’s father also faces sex charge”. Three children, two cases of severe abuse and unimaginable horror. And this is only the tiny part we know about and that gets publicity.
