This work is dedicated to the people who were killed by and during the Holocaust.
The Holocaust was – in its large scale – mainly decided during the Wannsee Conference in 1942 in Germany, close to Berlin. But there was an ongoing Holocaust already prior to this conference; the “Holocaust by bullet”, while the Holocaust after Wannsee was largely a gas Holocaust. The photographs exhibited here are made in the former concentration camp Dachau near Munich in January 2022 – precisely 80 years after the Wannsee Conference.
The photographs show two fundamental aspects:
1. The concentration camp Dachau as its role of the very first and prototype concentration camp in the whole German Nazi regime concentration camp network: Dachau was the learning platform for the Germans for Auschwitz and other concentration and death camps.
2. The processing of humans to death: arrival, stay, murder, burning.
