Richard Ehrlich, an urological surgeon with a second career in photography, went to to the International Tracing Service in Bad Arolsen, Germany - the repository for 50 million documents of Nazi atrocities in the world's largest Holocaust archive.

There, he shot hundreds of photographs and winnowed them down to a 54-image portfolio. He started in June 2007 and returned in September, taking long views of the storage system and close-ups of individual items, including Oskar Schindler's list of people who escaped death by working in his factory, a pile of snapshots confiscated from prisoners, badges that Jews were forced to wear, the order that sent Anne Frank to Bergen Belsen, where she died in 1945.

Each photograph signed verso. Signed lower right on title page.

Gelatin Silver Print. Portfolio of 54 color photographs, edition 1/5, signed lower right on title page. Each photograph measuring 16 x 20 x 16 in (sheet size)
