The American artist Quintan Ana Wikswo based an artistic project on the
remains of the so-called 'Sonderbauten' (Special Block) in Dachau – the
concentration camp brothel and created literary and photographic
commemorative works of art. Even today, this group of victims – sexually
exploited women in concentration camps – is still omitted from public
commemorative rituals. Wikswo’s pictures focus on those Jewish stories
of suffering that have been neither told nor documented.
