Swedish House-Gymnastics (1913)

These wonderful photographs, which make such innovative use of multiple exposure, are from a 1913 German book titled Schwedische Haus-Gymnastik nach dem System P.H. Lings by Theodor Bergquist, Director of the Swedish Gymnastic Institute in the Bavarian spa town of Bad Wörishofen.

‘Holocaust’: How a US TV series changed Germany

It was big-budget, American TV starring Meryl Streep. And in 1979 the mini-series Holocaust transformed how Germans saw their own history. 

It brought the horrors of Nazi crimes into people’s living rooms and turned the word “Holocaust” into a commonly-used term in the German language. 

This month the drama has been shown again on German TV – and it is as relevant as ever.
