Korte beschrijving/Annotatie

The compelling history of the programme to provide the Third Reich with a new generation of leaders, focusing on the personal consequences for those involved.

Tekst achterflap

On 12 December 1935, a programme was started in Germany to provide the Third Reich with a new generation of leaders: Lebensborn (Source of Life). SS officers were encouraged to reproduce as much as possible, including out of wedlock. In several Lebensborn homes scattered across West-Europe, (unmarried) women could give birth if they met the requirements of the Aryan race. After the war, the children from these homes and families were often stigmatised, mistreated, and abused. Many grew up with secrets. Lebensborn tells the compelling story of this particular history, focusing on the major events, but especially on the personal consequences for those involved.

Biografie

Angeniet Berkers is a socially engaged photographer based in Rotterdam, who graduated at the Royal Academy of Arts, The Hague. She has worked in mental health care for about 13 years as a sociotherapist helping veterans and refugees with complex PTSD and young people with acute psychiatric problems. As a photographer she chooses sensitive subjects and aims to depict them in an honest and a nuanced way. Her images are sensitive and melancholic, but at the same time warm and intimate. With her work she tries to get a grip on the extremities of today’s society by initiating projects that play with the viewer’s frame of reference.
