Propaganda Photographs

Most photographs from the Nazi era show the perpetrator perspective. Victims usually did not have access to cameras, which were rare and valuable at the time. This imbalance must be taken into account when viewing the photographs. Special propaganda material was created about forced labourers at Siemens. The commissioned photographer staged scenes that did not show the harsh conditions endured by forced labourers, but instead suggest an aura of lawfulness. Contrary to reality, the photographs conveyed a light-hearted atmosphere.
