A piece of local Mannheim history

The recordings document The city of Mannheim before the war, in the war days and the extensive destruction of the city, the reconstruction and the daily lives of citizens from the 1930s to the 1950s.

Architectural firms in Germany engaged Artur Pfau to photograph their buildings impressively. Pfaus works go beyond mere documentation and demonstrate an independent artistic imagery with often sharp contrasts.
