Inhaltsangabe: "Packed with carefully chosen photos of the concentration camps, German exiles, the war-injured, children, and bombed-out cities, this book is a moving reminder of the material and moral devastation left behind by Nazi Germany", says Rudy Koshar, University of Wisconsin, Madison. "Demonstrates how perspective plays a key role, not only in photography, but in questions of mastering Germany's past as well. [I]nnovative and fascinating", quotes Robert C. Holub, University of California, Berkeley. After half a century, Germany's coming to terms with Nazism remains a subject of debate. This investigation of the photographic record shows that such debates have overlooked the actual conditions in which postwar German memory was first forged. The Allied forces that entered Germany at the close of World War II were looking for remorse and open admissions of guilt from the Germans. Instead, they "saw" arrogance, servility, and a population thoroughly brainwashed by Nazis. But photos from the period tell a more complex story. In fact, Dagmar Barnouw argues that postwar Allied and German photography holds many possible clues for understanding the recent German past. A significant addition to the scholarship on postwar German culture and political identity, this book makes an important contribution to the current discussion of German memory.
Rezension: "[Barnouw] offers an engaging, provocative outline of the political forces inhibiting the retrieval of memories [of] how the war felt to those who lived through it ... [with] fascinating uses of autobiography." Clio "Barnouw establishes a case for creating a more complete historical remembrance for post-war generations." Journal of American Studies "The 'willing executioners' of Hitler's project ... had only one experience to tell. This overwhelming silencing of Germans as 'executioners' could not last forever. Dagmar Barnouw's book The War in the Empty Air provides evidence of Germans recovering their voices." Shofar
