Three Dimensions of Archive Footage. Researching Archive Films from the Holocaust
Archive footage from the Holocaust is an ambivalent source. Hence, specific ways of ‘reading’ this footage are required that analyse the specific content, review the context of its production, and also take into account the circulation and appropriation of the footage in visual culture and correspondingly examine its changing status. By reviewing particular footage from the Warsaw and the Theresienstadt ghetto the article delineates an approach to analyse these three dimensions of archive footage and correspondingly proposes a specific historiography of archive films from the Holocaust.
