(short excerpt of the recorded texts in German)

A 4 channel audio installation which was designed for the travelling exhibition
The Engineers of the ‘Final Solution’. Topf & Sons – Builders of the
Auschwitz Ovens
by the Buchenwald and Mittelbau-Dora Memorials Foundation.

In this work, actors read text fragments from historical documents. The fragments
come either from letters written by the prisoners in the form of secret
messages or from eye-witness reports at boards of enquiry in 1945 and
after. This work was realised by Jan Hendrik Brueggemeier and Ludger Hennig.

The exhibition has been shown at the following places aside others:
Jewish Museum Berlin, City Museum of Erfurt, Ruhrlandmuseum Essen, LWL
Industrial Museum, Ziegeleimuseum in Lage, Documentation Centre at the site of the Nuremberg Rally.
