The Liberation of Bergen Belsen concentration camp, 1945


About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.

    That is a picture that requires much explanation. Is it German propaganda, a photograph to make it appear that Bergen Belsen was merely a work camp with happy, well fed labourers, were they healthy new arrivals even more newly released and joyful for their freedom and loaves of bread, was it a later photograph posed to provide material for holocaust deniers, just a few possibilities, I am sure there are many more.
    Technically, a very good picture, good depth of field, likely taken with sheet film, or, at least, two and a quarter roll film.
