The Samovar | video

In my family a samovar plays a significant role: it was a wedding gift by my great-grandparents to their son Oskar and his wife Edith in the 1920s. On their ride to the celebration they forgot it in the train.

Part III – Neutral Zone | photo

  Email by Dr. Ley, Memorial Site of Konzentrationslager Sachsenhausen, May 2006: Dear Ms Ammon, (…) I can well imagine that it must be quite difficult to learn that a member of one’s own family was a concentration camp guard.

Part III – Neutral Zone | video

Video, silent. The camera moves along the „Neutral Zone“, the guard way between electric fence and the outer wall of KZ Sachsenhausen. My grandfather’s brother patrolled there, too. No one in the family wanted to have known about this.

Witkiewicz

In 1986 I went to Poland for the first time. While trying to invest the inevitable compulsory exchange in somewhat meaningful, I discoverd the photo book „Przeciw Nicości“ (Against Nothingness) with works of the impressive polish artist Witkiewicz in Kraków.

Part II – Second Travel

I learned that my uncle has disappeared from Vilnius since July 2000. At that time he met two German tourists. He decided to ride back to Germany with them in their vehicle. He has never shown up anywhere until today.

Part III – The Conversation

New Jersey. Talking with my grandfather’s in law while looking at old photographs. For the first time he mentions that my grandfather’s brother has been a member of the Waffen-SS. He still remembers unexpected details. I recorded our dialogue.
