A few hours in Oranienburg

January 21, 2013

Wow, I have finally taken the time to scan four rolls of film. Will show you a big amount of the pictures in the next few weeks.

Last summer Johan and I went to visit Oranienburg, a small town in the outskirts of Berlin – just a short S-bahn ride away. In Oranienburg you can visit the Sachsenhausen concentration camp (two first pictures). I don’t have more words.

    Beautiful images. I was in Berlin in November last year and visited Sachenhausen. It's an experience I'll never forget.

    Sandra! very good post. powerful – specially through first two pictures – the only thing I can say is that you are one of few artists that apply to the rule 'a picture speaks a thousand words' – you do it so well.

    Thanks for showing the photos. My family was Jewish and lived in Germany at that time. My father would not speak of his ancestry, he felt it was too sad, and did not want us to be religious. There is obviously much I have missed not knowing more of my heritage. There is more to all of us than the tragic things that happen due to immense ignorance. Thanks for showing all the light you show, but not being afraid to show us other things too.

    Dear S,
    I keep coming back to this post but I cannot find the proper words….it's the subject matter, coupled with the depth and character that the film has captured here that makes it even more emotional and poignant…(not to mention Sara and Ariane's comments make me want to cry!)….

    I'm not sure that I want to know for what were used those white "tables". Can you tell me please?

    You probably heard it thousands of times but your photos are amazing. And they make me want to go again to Berlin (and surroundings) and discover all those places that you show.
