Exhibition
Online since 31 May 2014

Although photo-reportage of the kind familiar to us from the Second World War was not yet so highly developed, a wealth of photographic evidence still exists, proving direct and lively insight into everyday military and civilian life, as well as into the feelings and thoughts of a whole generation.
