Photographing the Holocaust by Janina Struk

Book 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.

Private Pictures by Janina Struk Private Pictures, Paperback (September 2011)

Soldiers have taken photographs of war and its atrocities for more than 100 years. This title traces this unacknowledged genre of photography since the origins of popular photography in the Boer War. It discusses how the images have been used and asks what effect might the wider appreciation of soldiers' pictures have on the perception of war?
