Maria Klenner The Children of Bergen-Belsen English Edition

In her first monograph, Maria Klenner focuses on the fates of 2,000 children who were born immediately after the end of the Second World War in the displaced persons camp set up by the Allies in Bergen-Belsen. Over the course of more than eight years, a valuable collection of twenty-six portraits and eyewitness accounts by descendants of Holocaust survivors was created. Combined with archival material and historical images, this sensitive study sheds light on questions of history and migration, identity and belonging, trauma and new beginnings—questions that are as relevant today as they ever were. The German portrait and documentary photographer Maria Klenner (b. 1990) lives in Beirut, Lebanon, and works for numerous magazines and newspapers.
