Issue 107 – ‘SIGNS’
In 2020, when restrictions prevented people meeting one another, parties were taking place in UK government buildings. These events have been reported in the newspapers and represented by a small number of images. Judith Williamson has analysed the photographic evidence.
Jonathan Long joins us to discuss this issue’s archive feature, which is made up of images from a photographic album held in the collection of the Wiener Holocaust Library in London. The album was made in 1935 by German-Jewish businessman Fritz Fürstenberg and his fiancée, Käthe Smoszewski, who, at considerable personal risk, documented antisemitic signs dotted throughout the German countryside, its towns, and villages. The album was created to be disseminated as evidence of antisemitism in Germany. In his introduction to the pictures, Long notes the perturbing way that ‘propaganda has become so much part of the everyday’.
Free to attend. Booking is essential. This event will take place via Zoom. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch with Chloé via firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to seeing you there!
