520 "In January 1942, Soviet photographers came upon a scene
like none they had ever documented. That day, they took
pictures of the first liberation of a German mass atrocity
site, where an estimated 7,000 Jews and others were
executed at a trench near Kerchon the Crimean peninsula.
Dmitri Baltermants, a photojournalist working for the
Soviet newspaper Izvestiia, took pictures that day that
would have a long life in shaping the image of Nazi
genocide in and against the Soviet Union. Presenting never
beforeseen photographs, Grief: The Biography of a
Holocaust Photograph shows how Baltermants used the image
of a grieving woman to render this gruesome mass atrocity
into a transcendentally human tragedy. David Shneer tells
the story of how one photograph fromthe trench became much
more widely known than the others, eventually being titled
"Grief." Baltermants turned this shocking atrocity
photograph into a Cold War era artistic meditation on the
profundity and horror of war that today can be found in
Holocaust archives as well as art museums and at art
auctions. Although the journalist documented murdered Jews
in other pictures he took at Kerch, in "Grief" there are
likely no Jews among the dead or the living, save for the
possible NKVD officer securing the site. Nonetheless,
Shneer shows that this photograph must be seen as an
iconic Holocaust photograph. Unlike emaciated camp
survivors or barbed wire fences, Shneer argues, the
Holocaust by bullets in the Soviet Union make "Grief" a
quintessential Soviet image of Nazi genocide"--|cProvided
