On Photography Photograph
The author described one of his experiences about seeing some images that really caused an impact for him. In pages 19-22 he writes, "Nothing...in photographs or in real life ever cut me as sharply, deeply, instantaneously." He was talking about images he saw of Bergen-Belsen and Dachau, concentration camps. The image above is of a A crematoria oven where the corpses of prisoners were burned in Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. (April 28, 1945). The camp was established in 1940 as a prison. By 1943 it was converted into a concentration camp. On April 15th, 1945 the people were liberated.
