In the upcoming issue of š! five young European artists shed some light on one of the darkest periods of our past. They tell stories about victims of National Socialism based on incidents and biographies found and researched during the project “Redrawing Stories from the Past”.
Fragment of Max Baitinger's contribution
Accompanied by a comic artist and a comic theorist, the artists were supported in their research and artistic work for almost a year. The stories illustrate a rather unseen, forgotten or even marginalized part of our common memory and give voice to the lives of people who have not been heard before, thus offering a new perspective and better understanding of our present as well.
