Publisher's Description

Second Edition.

The unknown archive of Russian war photographer Valery Faminsky (1914–1993). Published in German and English, the illustrated book shows the liberation of Berlin, like the first days of peace in the city, from a personal, but above all from one shows a very human point of view. Taken without any kind of pathos and propaganda, these photographs describe with a humanistic look the longing for peace and the reality of war. The authenticity and the closeness to the events that get under your skin make the viewer witness to these historical hours and days. Judging by the outstanding artistic quality of his photographs, Valery Faminsky is on a par with photographers such as Jewgeni Chaldej and Robert Capa.

The 75-year war ends On May 8, 2020, we will celebrate the end of the Second World War in Europe. 75 years after the end of the war and the liberation from National Socialism, Faminsky's pictures can help us to preserve the memory of May 1945, to understand and reflect on our history.
