The Children of Bergen-Belsen

The Crowdfunding campaign is now live!

A photographic study of history and migration, identity and belonging, trauma and healing. A documentary project about the first generation of Jewish children who were born in the displaced persons camp Bergen-Belsen in Germany after 1945. On the occasion of the UN International Day of Holocaust Remembrance on January 27th, 2020, an excerpt of the project was shown for the first time during the group exhibition 5rooms and at the Ahlem Memorial Museum in Hanover, Germany.

The corresponding photobook will be published by Kehrer Verlag in spring 2023. Join me in bringing this project to life by supporting and sharing my Kickstarter campaign with your network. For further information you can reach me at mail (at) mariaklenner.com. Thank you for your support!
