Abstract:

The Auschwitz Museum was established in 1947 as a monument to the Polish resistance. In the late eighties Hans Citroen met Barbara Starzyńska and he ended up visiting her relatives in Oświęcim, the city where his grandfather survived KZ Auschwitz. He noticed many incongruities that did not seem to disturb other visitors. Looking for an explanation, they talked with archivists and curators and explored the sites many times. Their research covers mostly the years that followed the Holocaust. Bit by bit, they find a hidden city, Barbara as architect, Hans as artist. The story of the search reads like a novel and therefore is a substantial part of this photographic investigation.
