30min. practice-as-research film that explores the contemporary site of the Bavarian town, Landsberg-am-Lech, where Adolf Hitler wrote Mein Kampf (1925) -- a town that lies on the ‘Romantische Strasse’ and which was named by the Nazis as ‘The City of Youth’ and declared Judenfrei (free of Jews). This is also the town that saw the arrival and incarceration of 30,000 Jews in 1944, half of whom perished before its concentration camps were liberated in 1945. Today, as the film explores, the physical presence of the camps and eleven mass graves located around the town are hidden from view and public memory. Research and filming for this project was undertaken in Landsberg, Dachau, the USHMM in Washington D.C., the USC Shoah Foundation in LA, and Knoxville, TN.
