Analysing just three photo(-series), Christoph Kreutzmüller shows how anti-Jewish practice in Germany radicalised and how the ex- and inclusionary processes accompanying them worked in Nazi Germany between 1933 and 1940.
The material gives historical insights into the complex years of 1940 to 1944, principally to discuss the current memoralisation and prevailing narratives in Hungary and the mixture of facts, myths and legends.
The aim of the material provided here is to discuss how and why Roma and Sinti were and are continuously excluded from European societies.
