Nazi German propaganda photographs taken in Warsaw during World War II that aimed to show Poles and Jews in a negative light are on display in a new exhibition in the capital.

The collection, at Dom Spotkań z Histori± (Meeting with History House) at 20 Karowa St. is entitled Through the Enemy's Lens: German Press Photographers in Occupied Warsaw (1939-1945).

The organizers, Danuta Jackiewicz and Eugeniusz Cezary Król, selected nearly 250 pictures from the Photography Archive of Prussian Cultural Heritage in Berlin and from the Federal Archives in the German city of Koblenz.

The collection is part of Wehrmacht and SS Propaganda Companies tasked with delivering materials for the Nazi mass media, including the press, radio and newsreels. The German photographers who took these pictures of Nazi-occupied Warsaw were acting on the instructions of the Reich Ministry for Public Education and Propaganda.

The pictures are accompanied by explanations and reproductions of posters and newspapers, helping visitors interpret the work of the German photographers.
