kz überlebt - Portraits von Stefan Hanke

In the organizer's words:

As contemporary witnesses of Nazi crimes, the survivors of the concentration and extermination camps with their different biographies are the focus of the work of Regensburg photographer Stefan Hanke. In cooperation with the Villa Seligmann, the Landesmuseum Hannover presents over 60 impressive black and white portraits and invites viewers to a lasting encounter with extraordinary people.

Without a preconceived victim template, Hanke portrays people from all groups of persecuted people from a total of seven countries who can still be reached. The expressive photographs show the protagonists in their respective living environments or at the sites of their persecution and imprisonment. Surprising statements in the form of quotes and unexpected historical references give the personal paths of life and suffering their own face and enable a special access to the history(ies) surrounding one of the greatest catastrophes of humanity.
