Objects of Holocaust Inmates Reveal Hidden Stories in Exhibition
A violin, a pair of clogs and a child’s teddy bear.
These are just some of the objects that were photographed by a Sydney based artist when he was granted access to the closed archives of Sachsenhausen and Ravensbrück concentration camps after liberation.
Behind each of the objects photographed, now exhibiting at the Sydney Jewish Museum is a story; of the deeply tragic and personal lives, chronicling the humanity and trauma of these individuals, memorialized in a way never seen before.
The Daily was joined by photographer Richard Wiesel himself to talk about his experience in bringing these artefacts to life through the exhibition ‘Objects from Concentration Camps’.
