The images convey the scope of the Nazi camp and extermination system in an impressive way. In an installation in the foyer of the Jewish Museum Munich Viertlböck is now showing two powerful works on “Fort IX” in Kaunas.
More than 900 persecuted Jewish men and women were deported from the barracks camp in the Milbertshofen district of Munich to Fort IX on November 20, 1941, where they were shot a few days later.

The exhibition forms part of a commemorative project on Jews deported from Munich. More information about the series under: deportiert-aus-muenchen.de.
