Objects From The Concentration Camps

Objects From The Concentration Camps

Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust presents “Objects From the Concentration Camps,” a moving exhibition of photographs chronicling personal artifacts from the closed archives of Ravensbrück and Sachsenhausen Concentration Camps. 

A relative of Holocaust survivor and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Elie Wiesel, Richard Wiesel was granted exclusive access to the closed archives of the memorials Sachsenhausen and Ravensbrück to photograph artifacts that had never been seen publicly. Through extensive research, he discovered the heartbreaking individual stories behind the stolen objects and ultimately learned about their owners’ tragic fates.  

The photographed objects include a harmonica, playing cards, a doctor’s tool kit, a child’s teddy bear and a miniature Hebrew bible.  

A deeply emotional guided tour of the Holocaust memorials in Berlin in 2018 inspired Wiesel to capture images of personal items that once belonged to concentration camp inmates. Working with world renowned German historian Dr. Robert Sommer, he combed through artifacts found at the camps after liberation or subsequently donated by the survivor or their families and then researched their stories. 

Wiesel previously spent 26 years of his working career as a marketing director for Universal Pictures and Paramount Pictures home entertainment. He currently works from a photography studio in Sydney, Australia.
