    Germany, 1939. At the outbreak of war, Hitler authorises a programme of mass-murder targeting the nation’s disabled people, transporting them from institutions to killing centres. Elise is a patient who sweeps the institution. She doesn’t speak and staff assume she doesn’t understand. But she watches everything. She watches buses full of patients leave and return empty. When it’s her turn, she knows what’s in store. Incarcerated, what hope can there be? Based on real events, this is the story of one woman’s resistance, in the only way she could.

          • Is What Was

            Please visit www.jerry501.com for more information about the complete film. IS WHAT WAS is an experimental documentary film essay that began as a visual diary of a visit to the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp near Berlin, where gay men were tortured and murdered by the Nazis. My friend Wilhelm Hein brought me to that place in 2007 where I first saw a Pink Triangle that was worn by one of my ancestors-in-spirit. Around the same time I had begun to find vernacular photographs (snapshots) of Nazi soldiers that had been taken by their compatriots during the time of the Holocaust. These photographs were found in disassembled albums at flea markets and in private collections in America and Europe. The contradiction between the Nazi persecution of gay men and the visual evidence in the photographs prompted an inquiry into the context in which sexual identity is formulated. This inquiry led directly to the pioneering work of Karl Heinrich Ulrichs (1825 – 1895). Although Ulrichs’ ideas of same gender sexuality are steeped in 19th Century imagery, he was nonetheless the first to name it, describe it, and promote it in positive, constructive terms that included not only the sexual aspects of Queer life, but sought to find the whole person in the andere sexualitaet (the other sexuality). Through the understanding of pride and power the contradiction in the photographs can be deciphered, and Ulrichs’ “Raethsel” (riddle) can be resolved: Queer Identity encompasses more than sexuality, and therein lays the threat to the power structures of oppression. The film intercuts present day images of Sachsenhausen and Berlin created by photographer Sean Michael Kirk, with the vernacular photographs and moving images to create this experimental visual essay.

                      Kazerne Dossin is a unique place of remembrance for the Holocaust in Belgium. More than 25,000 Jews and Gypsies were gathered in the Dossin barracks and deported to Auschwitz- Birkenau. A brand-new museum has been built opposite the barracks to shine a new light on this symbolic place. Kazerne Dossin explores one of the darkest pages in Belgium’s history, while also examining human rights in their contemporary context. The Memorial, Museum and Documentation Centre on Holocaust and Human Rights informs, remembers and warns against exclusion, discrimination and mass violence, in the past and today. “The new museum owes its growing reputation to its efforts to render the Holocaust relevant to a younger public, drawing attention to the underlying conditions that can lead to human rights violations.” (History Today)
