Crimes Hitlériens - Grand Palais - Hitler's Crimes - An album of disturbing photographs documenting the horrors of the Nazis that accompanied the exhibition held after the war at the "Grand Palais" in Paris between June 10 and July 31, 1945. Paris,  - first edition.
The album is spiral bound and contains 27 high quality photographs, each 23x17 cm in size. Each photo is protected by parchment paper, and described on the parchment paper in three languages - English, French and Russian. Extremely disturbing photos appear, some of which were found after the war in the possession of Nazi soldiers, documenting among other things signs of severe torture on the bodies of the tortured, as well as acts of severe abuse of people photographed by the Nazis in the act, executions photographed in real time, prisoners in the death camps in poor physical condition, and piles of corpses of the murdered, the crematorium, and more. This album is one of the most disturbing depictions of acts of abuse committed by human beings since the dawn of history. On the front and back covers is a large photo of a mass grave with the victims' corpses in a camp. The first photo in the album documents those entering the building where the exhibition was held in Paris. In recent years, many photo albums documenting the horrors of the Nazis have passed through the Dynasty auction house, this is one of the most disturbing albums we have ever encountered. (We did not photograph the most disturbing photos for the sale catalog).
The exhibition "Crimes Hitlériens: Grand Palais" was held in Paris between June 10 and July 31, 1945 under the auspices of the French government, and presented to the public the horrors committed by the Nazis in the death camps during the war. Among the curators of the exhibition was Lord Wright, chairman of the UN War Crimes Commission. The building was divided into 29 rooms at the "Grand Palais", each of which focused on a different aspect of the horrors of the Nazis. Photos, films, documents and objects were presented, all intended to shock and horrify the viewer. One of the rooms at the exhibition was dedicated to the fate of the Jews. It presented a chronology of the internment of Jews in the French camps of Pithiviers, Beuane-la-Rolande and Drancy, in the occupied zone, and in Gurs in southwestern France under the Vichy regime. It was noted that the number of deportations from Drancy to Germany was 62,608. More than a million people who were exposed to the horrors of the Holocaust for the first time visited the exhibition.
