Photographing the Holocaust : Interpretations of the Evidence, Hardback Book

Photographing the Holocaust : Interpretations of the Evidence Hardback

Hardback

Description

Atrocities committed by the Nazis during the Holocaust were photographed more intensely that any before.

In the time since the images were taken they have been subjected to a perplexing variety of treatments: variously ignored, suppressed, distorted and above all exploited for propaganda purposes.

With the use of many photographs, including some never before seen, this book traces the history of this process and asks whether the images can be true representations of the events they were depicting.

Yet their provenance, Janina Struk argues, has been less important that the uses to which a wide range of political interests has put them, from the desperate attempts of the war-time underground to provide hard evidence of the death camps to the memorial museums of Europe, the US and Israel today.
