Claartje Wesselink: ‘Memory Is the Only Paradise’ – Photographs from a Jewish Family Archive

22,95

Volume 20 of the Rijksmuseum Studies in Photography is devoted to a special collection of family photogra[hs. Based on these, Claartje Wesselink tells the tragic story of the Jewish Wachenheimer family.

Since the reopening of the Rijksmuseum in 2013, a striped concentration camp jacket hangs in the Twentieth Century room. Below this a photograph album is displayed which is opened at a different page every few months. The jacket belonged to Isabel Wachenheimer (1928-2010) who was the only one of her immediate Germen-Jewish family to survive the Shoah.

Claartje Wesselink (1980) is a lecturer and guest researcher of cultural history at Amsterdam University and a historian on the Netherlands Advisory Committee on the Assessment of Restitution Applications for Items of Cultural Value and the Second World War.
