Memory Effects: The Holocaust and the Art of Secondary Witnessing

By Dora Apel

"Jim Friedman’s ’12 Nazi Concentration Camps’ constitutes an important challenge to the largely sacralized and romanticized work of other photographers on this topic. His exploration of the elegiac impulse of second and third generations to return to the sites of the catastrophe offers an uncompromising and original strategy for the memory work of later generations.”
