"This is Germany and it is spring," wrote the American photo reporter Lee MILLER as she advanced into the Rhineland with US troops in March 1945. Over the next few weeks she captured the invasion of the Americans, the destruction and everyday life of the Germans in the first days of the occupation, and even took a bath in Hitler's bathtub in his private apartment in Munich. Above all, however, she documented the horrors of the regime in the Buchenwald and Dachau concentration camps - the latter one day after the liberation. Her recordings reflect the curiosity, shock and hatred of Americans in the face of the atrocities.
Around 150 of her unique photographs are combined in Lee MILLER's photo book 'Germany 1945'. The historical context describes and analyzes with the Anglo-American historian Richard Bessel a proven expert on Nazi Germany. The book throws a new, equally captivating and shocking look at the low point of German history. "(Publisher's text, © Greven Verlag, 2018)
