Mark Mühlhaus: Photography Workshop

The workshop invites all those interested to engage photographically with the topic of Nazi forced labour and to learn how to use a digital SLR camera.

The historical site of the Nazi Forced Labour Documentation Centre is the focus of the search for traces. The participants find their own motifs on the grounds of the former accommodation camp for forced labourers and create pictures. The aim is to tell their own story through the examination of content and photography. The photographer Mark Mühlhaus ( has dealt intensively with the topic of Nazi commemoration politics. His images have been published, among others, in the illustrated books "Begegnungen" and "KZ Überlebende und die, die nach ihnen kommen" or in photo exhibitions such as "Im Schatten von Auschwitz" (2018/2021).
