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.
