The exhibitions of the CHRD becomes attached alternately to the values of the Resistance, to the current events of human rights or to the lifes of committed individuals. In this way, the CHRD presents " Lodz's Ghetto" by Henryk Ross.
Henryk Ross was a photographer employed by the ghetto's department of statistics who kept a clandestine diary of ghetto life in powerful and often brillant images. When the ghetto's liquidation began, he buried them. A survivor, he dug them up after the war, releasing many that were to become icons of the Holocaust's atrocities. But he released only a minority of the pictures during his lifetime. After Ross's death en 1991, his archive, the most extensive collection of ghetto photographs by any single photographer, was acquired by the Archive of Modern Conflict in London. This exhibition is the first independent look at the entirety of Ross's ghetto photographs. Many of the images are what we expect, seraing documents of the machinery of the Holocaust and the suffering of its victims. But other private photographs reveal life in ghetto, with happiness sometimes as Ross states in his catalogue, showing aspects of a privileged life. They add an unexpected, complex and poignant dimension to the photographic record of the ghetto, and demand a reassessment of how we understand its social order. Together with the public photographs, and the knowledge that almost everyone depicted perished in the death camps, they expose the implementation of the Holocaust as even more divisively cruel than we previously imagined.
