FRAGMENTS | Eye on the Camera

Already in 1933, Hitler, who wanted to rearm Germany, ordered during a cabinet meeting to put photographers on guard and wait for the order of the hour. In 1938, a year before the invasion of Poland, the Wehrmacht recruited a large number of photographers for propaganda purposes. Many of the photographers volunteered for the job out of fear of being sent across the border, but the order to photograph was given to all soldiers and included clear rules: no photographing wounded soldiers, no photographing dead soldiers, no photographing violence against Jews and/or other persecuted people.
