Summary
In January 1942, Soviet photographers came upon a scene like none they had ever documented. That day, they took pictures of the first liberation of a German mass atrocity site, where an estimated seven thousand Jews and others were executed at a trench near Kerch on the Crimean peninsula. Dmitri Baltermants, a photojournalist working for the Soviet newspaper Izvestiia, took pictures that day that would have a long life in shaping the image of Nazi genocide in and against the Soviet Union. Presenting never-before-seen photographs, Grief: The Biography of a Holocaust Photograph shows how Baltermants used the image of a grieving woman to render this gruesome mass atrocity into a transcendentally human tragedy
