Freedman Fellows -- Susanne Vees-Gulani

Vees-Gulani aims to create a database and visualizations both in print and electronic format. These visualizations will serve purpose in her book, The Myth of Dresden: Origins and Manifestation of the German Victim Discourse I, and interactively through digital presentation to be used in lectures. Her study focuses on the German city of Dresden and how it acquired its place as a tourist destination and later destruction during World War II, to the eventual rebuilding of this city back to its original condition. Artifacts such as photographs, film, paintings, postcards, and tourist guides provide counter-examples of images of Dresden following wartime destruction, leaving room for discussion of its victimization after the bombing in 1945.
