Farewell Letters

Tracing the trail of Freya and Helmuth James von Moltke
Artist Anja Putensen's photo book is a quest for clues to the lives of resistance fighters Freya (1911 – 2010) and Helmuth James von Moltke (1907 – 1945). The photographs trace locations relating to their farewell letters: the Gut Kreisau (Kreisau estate), now an international meeting centre, is artistically portrayed, as is Tegel prison. The former Volksgerichtshof (People's Court) – today the Court of Appeal – and Plötzensee execution chamber are also documented. The atmospheric photographs alternate with excerpts from the letters.
