Vienna's Conscience: Close-ups and Conversations after Hitler
Vienna's Conscience: Close-ups and Conversations after Hitler

After more than half a century, the Anschluss still resonates in Vienna. On March 12, 1938, the Austrian capitol welcomed Hitler and Nazis with open arms. The effects were immediate. Within days, tens of thousands of people were arrested and the city’s 180,000-plus Jews, 10 percent of the city’s population, soon were placed in concentration camps. In Vienna’s Conscience, the late Richard Winter, a Viennese Jew who escaped to America in 1938, relates the complexity of modern Vienna through interviews and images, with assistance from his wife Susan Winter Balk. Beneath the beauty of the city’s grandiose architecture lies conflict within the population as it comes to grip with its past. Winter depicts this conflict through insightful interviews and striking images. The resulting portraits resonate beyond their pages. Gregory Weeks places Winter’s work in context.
