Exhibition in cooperation with the Jewish Museum Hohenems and the Flossenbürg Concentration Camp Memorial.

What follows when the last survivors of the Holocaust have died? What remains are written testimonies and countless video interviews of contemporary witnesses and the question of how we want to deal with this legacy in the future.

It was not until the late 1980s that people in Germany began to take an interest in the people who could tell of the crimes of the National Socialists. Apart from those who were looking for witnesses for post-war trials, no one wanted to hear their stories.

The exhibition focuses on the memory of the Holocaust as it has been handed down in interviews and recordings of public appearances by contemporary witnesses. It questions the “madeness” of the interviews and the social expectations behind them. It sheds light on the conditions under which the survivors were able to recount their experiences and with what intentions they did so. Reflections on digital preservation such as the Shoah Foundation’s holograms or other forms of remembering direct the view into the future.

The exhibition, which was designed by the Jewish Museum Hohenems in cooperation with the Flossenbürg Concentration Camp Memorial, was substantially revised for the Augsburg exhibition venue and provided with contemporary witness documents from Augsburg and Swabia. A diverse, curated program of events will accompany the exhibition.
