Abstract:

Landscapes such as Galicia, Bessarabia, Podolia or Bukovina are no longer found on any map. There, in Eastern Europe, in a belt between the Baltic and Black Seas, lived the majority of European Jews. During the Second World War, almost all of them were murdered by the German occupiers and their collaborators. What remains are traces of Jewish life: destroyed or misappropriated synagogues, overgrown cemeteries, tombstones in the street paving, and traces of home blessings on door jambs. The Cologne-based photographer and blogger Christian Herrmann has travelled Eastern Europe for years to document such traces. As a photographer, he is above all interested in the places that have not yet been transformed by a 'culture of remembrance' and which immediately reveal the devastating power of the dictatorships of the 20th century. On 180 pages, the book presents 110 photos of Jewish heritage sites in 57 cities, towns and villages in Ukraine, the Republic of Moldova, Poland, Hungary and Romania.
