Through the current special exhibition „Was erzählen Fotografien? Albert Dieckmanns Bilder aus dem besetzten Osteuropa 1941/42“
During the war against the Soviet Union, the occupying forces committed unprecedented crimes against Soviet prisoners of war and the civilian population. Photographs play a central role in the memory of this war.
In addition to the photos taken by professional photojournalists, there is also a wide tradition of amateur photographs. This includes the color photographs of the Wehrmacht doctor Albert Dieckmann (1896-1982), which the Museum Berlin-Karlshorst is showing for the first time in this exhibition, classifying them from multiple perspectives and critically examining them. Graphic novel elements link the compilation of photos, document and letter quotations, guiding questions, and exhibition texts.
