Experiments on the immates of concentration camps

Exhibition by Institute for History of Medicine (University of Erlangen-Nürnberg)
The exhibition is divided into three sections. The first deals with the academic an ideological background that led to the experiments as well as their locale, the concentration camps in which people, reduced to the status ob objects, became the victims of, often fatal, experiments. At the centre of the exhibition are four such case studies which also illustrate the spectrum of academic, martial, ideolocial and economic interests, that led to such work as well as pointing up to the appaling suffering of the victims and the sadistic ambition of the perpetrators of these crimes. The exhibition concludes with the post 1945 repercussions.

RACIAL FANATICISM - The Nürnberg Laws 1935

Exhibition by Nürnberg Documentation Centre Nazi Party Rally Grounds
On september 15th 1935, at the "Rally of freedom" in Nürnberg, the Nazi party announced new laws relating to the relationships between jews and non-jews. Marriage and extramarital sexual relations was now officially a "racial disgrace" and forbidden. The rights of all jewish (formerly fellow) citizens were drastically reduced and further weight was added to the burgeoning mass of post 1933 antisemitic propaganda and regulations. It is little known, and the exhibition shows it, that up to 1943 many more "Durchführungsbestimmungen" (enforcements) followed. With a bureaucratic fanaticism the rights of the jews were eroded bit by bit until nothing remained save the "legality" of pushing them into ghettos and then finally to the extermination camps.

"UTTER HARDNESS ..." Crimes of the "Wehrmacht" in Poland

An exhibition of the German Historical Institute, Warsaw.
"In Poland it is common that the 'Wehrmacht' already in 1939 during the early weeks of the war committed heavy crime against citizens and prisoners of war. The exhibition 'Utter hardness ...' which started in spring 2005 focuses on these first crimes of war under World War II. Since the 1st of September 2004, there is shown a Polish version of this exhibition." (Taken from the foreword of the exhibition's catalogue)

MICHAEL JASTRAM - Sculptures and Drawings

"Jastram's Gladiators, Warriors and Fishermen are classic statues, with which the aura which had left artistic production has risen again. These works of art talk to us from a great distance. To be precise: They convey their silence to us from a great distance. We have to get up and go, if we want to encounter them."
Dr. Werner Marx, Art Historian, Mannheim

"Most recently, objects made of wood and bronze have emerged, which combine houses, ladders and stairs with figurative elements. They result in impressive works which show clearly the dangers affecting the human race."
Prof. Dr. Manfred Fath, Staedtische Kunsthalle Mannheim

"The sketchy drawings rouse the imagination of the beholder, they capture the vision to think over the treatment of movement and transparency on the surface and within space.
Michael Jastram clears the view with his reduced artistic language in favour of concentration and transparency."
Dr. Gabriele Muschter, Art Historian, Berlin
