For rea­sons that remain unclear to this day, the depor­ta­ti­on of some 521 main­ly elder­ly Jews from Wies­ba­den and sur­roun­ding districts, via Frank­furt, to The­re­si­en­stadt on 1st Sep­tem­ber 1942 was docu­men­ted in a seri­es of pho­to­graphs by an alle­ged­ly unknown pho­to­gra­pher. This lec­tu­re exami­nes the pho­to­graphs as an his­to­ri­cal record, loo­king at what they com­mu­ni­ca­te to the view­er, the ways in which this com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on takes place and how, at times, the images act as a cor­rec­ti­ve to writ­ten accounts of the events. Dr. Drey­fus will dis­cuss the fea­tures that make this seri­es dis­tinc­ti­ve among the many sur­vi­ving depor­ta­ti­on pho­to­graphs from other cities. The talk also addres­ses some of the myths and mis­in­for­ma­ti­on that have collec­ted around the pho­to­graphs in the public nar­ra­ti­ve and several insti­tu­tio­nal data­ba­ses and that per­sist, even though it is now eigh­ty years sin­ce the pho­to­graphs were taken and more than for­ty years sin­ce they ent­e­red the public domain and began to be spo­ken and writ­ten about.
