Featured Lecture: SS Photographs from Concentration Camps - Perpetrator sources and Counter Narratives of Victims
Lukas Meissel (PhD candidate, Haifa University, and 2018-2019 Greenberg Research Fellow)

In this lecture, Lukas Meissel (PhD candidate, Haifa University, and 2018-2019 Greenberg Research Fellow) presents the preliminary findings of his dissertation research about photographic practices in concentration camps, specifically photos taken by SS men, to argue that the SS photographs were used to create a specific visual narrative of the concentration camps that excludes significant aspects of the camps’ reality.
