“Beruf ‘Bildberichterstatterin’”


General Photography

The Deutsches Historisches Museum (German Historical Museum) has a very interesting exhibition about “Bildberichterstatterinnen” - that’s how the Nazis called female photo journalists. The exhibition shows the work of Liselotte Purper between 1937 and 1944, depicting the Nazis’ view of the role and work of women. Unfortunately, the text of the exhibition is in German. But even if you don’t understand German you can still look at the photos which are very interesting in themselves (all the photos are thumbnails, click on them to see large versions).
