The Unpublished Archive

The discovery of an unpublished photo album of the Italian-Austrian Hapkemeyer family reveal photos of Nazi parades and Adolf Hitler never shared before. Most of the photos in the album were taken by the 14-year-old photographer Ingrid Hapkemeyer who descended from an intellectual family. Hapkemeyer was following the Nazi activities and was at some points allowed to get as close as two meters of Adolf Hitler and take several close-ups of him.   

The historical context of the album is the central topic of a new film accompanied by analytical essays, presenting different perspectives on the photographer’s work, history and life during and after the 1940’s.
