A group project conducted by Professor Piotr Nathan. The aim of the project is to rethink the biographies of the homosexual prisoners of the Ravensbrück concentration camp which is mainly known to the public as a women’s concentration camp.

My work as a part of this project is a reflection of Gustav Herzberg as a personality and as a friend based on archived material, such as his photos and poems written by him before he got imprisoned. Gustav was a homosexual prisoner and a victim of the concentration camp
