Project description online

The 45-minute audio walk leads from Ettersburg Castle near Weimar to the Buchenwald concentration camp memorial and can be used as preparation for a visit to the memorial. Following the steps of the artist, one walks through the forest while interview partners describe their connection to the concentration camp. One focus lies in images of the Holocaust - in particular photographs from the liberated camps. The walk ends on arrival at the memorial site.

The audio walk is available in German and English via a smartphone app.
