DER MENSCH IST EIN SCHÖNER GEDANKE

(Siegfried Richter)  82.10Min  2017

What kind of societal relevance does a memorial place of a former concentration camp have 72 years after the end of the war? The historian Volkhard Knigge has been the director of the Buchenwald memorial foundation for the past 20 years. Time and again he reflects upon the meaning and significance of this place of remembrance.

The architect Karina Loos has described the buildings and facilities of the former concentration camp in terms of their functionality –these texts are read by Corinna Harfouch. An own cinematic level develops additionally, also due to her linguistic laconism, that illustrates how Weimar’s Ettersberg, “an ordinary place, turned into something murderous” (V. Knigge).
