Holocaust in Lithuania

The sources for the following outline of National Socialism in Lithuania can be found in the included links, well documented without a doubt. Many scientists worldwide have carefully revised this dark chapter in human history - whether for Germany, France, Lithuania, etc. Based on these facts, the number of those who embrace the repulsive ideas of the National Socialists of the 20th century should be reduced, even in the current information age.

Wiligrad Castle on Lake Schwerin

From 1945 until the fall of the Wall Wiligrad Castle was not to be found on any map for political reasons: Willigrad Castle, the less known but all the more beautiful building in the Mecklenburg castles landscape. Around 1900, Duke Johann Albrecht zu Mecklenburg-Schwerin planned the impressive neo-renaissance building with the architect Albrecht Haupt and built it on the steep bank of Lake Schwerin.

Friedrichstadt - Little Holland in North Frisia

Friedrichstadt was founded in 1621 at the confluence of the Treene and the Eider in North Frisia. In order to get the water of the city under control and to realize a quick settlement, knowledgeable Dutchmen were recruited to build dykes. Since the Christian religious community of the Remonstrants was persecuted in Holland at that time, many Remonstrants settled in Friedrichstadt, as Duke Friedrich III guaranteed the residents freedom of religion here.

The Kuna - indigenous people in Panama

About 30,000 Kuna, which call themselves Dule (translated: human), live in San Blas, an approximately 200 km long coastal strip along the northeastern Atlantic coast of Panama with its offshore islands up to the Colombian border. You can reach the islands by boat and you will find well-kept huts as accommodations with these friendly people.The Kuna are known for their traditional dances, which we wanted to include in this project. In addition, with years of resistance to Panama's integration efforts, the Kuna have managed to anchor their rights to independence in the Panama Constitution, which has contributed to the high authenticity of today's Kuna. The Panama Constitution guarantees Kuna rights and territorial rights - but they have had to fight hard for their autonomy today.

Sillamäe - seaside resort, war location, uranium mining

Today's Sillamäe high up in the north-east of the Republic of Estonia has experienced a lot - even from the map it had to disappear when the Soviet Union began mining and enriching uranium here after the occupation of Estonia. The corresponding environmental damage extends to the present. In the northwestern part of the city there is a nuclear and chemically contaminated storage pond directly on the Baltic Sea coast. But where there is shadow, there must also be light (freely according to ...) and this shines particularly beautifully on the elegant stairs and promenades on the Baltic Sea coast.

Color-Key pictures of plants

If the photo already tells a good story, the color scheme can add another facet to the suspense. We then no longer speak of photographs, the purpose of which is to reproduce motifs as lifelike as possible, e.g. is for documentation, but of images based on photographic material as the result of an artistic act. From this point of view, color key recordings should ultimately be assessed.
