After a welcoming word from the memorial manager Dr. Gabriele Hammermann, the curator Ulrike Jensen introduced the exhibition "generations." Then Helene Middelhauve, student at the Josef Effner-Gymnasium, introduced the exhibition "angle" . Following adolescents reported about their project.
The renowned photographer Mark Mulhouse worked for many years on the subject of concentration camp survivors and portrayed this at various events in memorial sites in Germany, Austria and Poland. The resulting exhibition "Generations" deals in an artistic way with remembering. Survivors visit the old places of their suffering and encounter people of different backgrounds and ages.The exhibition was curated by Ulrike Jensen, who has worked for 25 years as an educator, and historian in the Neuengamme concentration camp memorial.
The students of the Joseph Effner-Gymnasium and the volunteers of the memorial site and the Max Mannheimer Study Centre learned in a photography workshop with Mark Mühlhaus not only how to deal with the camera, but he has brought them so much inspiration, that they also wanted to deal creatively with the Memorial. The photos in the exhibition "Perspective" therefore show their personal perception of this historic places. From the resulting photos 17 images have been selected, which are now shown to March 13 at the Memorial.
