Vordemberge-Gildewart Foundation Award 2011

The Foundation was created in 1981 on the initiative of Ilse Engeline Vordemberge-Leda, who wished to fulfil the last wish of her late husband Friedrich Vordemberge-Gildewart. The Swiss Foundation promotes young artists aged under 36. To that end, since 1983, annually, in selected European country, it organises an award competition.

Wilhelm Brasse. Photographer. 3444. Auschwitz 1940-1945

In March 2010 Maria Anna Potocka conducted an interview with Wilhelm Brasse. The outcome is the book with edited tales of the prisoner-cum-chief-photographer of Auschwitz, together with a film with fragments of the interview. There is an introduction by the historian Teresa Wontor-Cichy from the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum, the academic editor. The book is generously illustrated with photographs from Wilhelm Brasse’s own archives, as well as the Photographic Archives of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum and Yad Vashem.

History in Art

The catalogue is in two parts. The first consists of essays written by researchers of various humanist disciplines. The second has reproductions of works from the exhibition with the artists’s comments.
