In its 12 years of existence the Third Reich changed the history of the world. Millions of German were swept along by a manic pace of events blurring processes of choice and action, and obscuring lines between meaning and senselessness. Charman, on the staff of the British Imperial War Museum, has produced an extended collage. Its focus on the German home front meant excluding other faces of Nazi Germany: the battlefields and the concentration camps. Nevertheless, the work's visual elements, including many previously unpublished photos, convey the Third Reich's protean nature more clearly than any number of words. Advertisements for sentimental "domestic films" are juxtaposed to candid shots of air-raid victims. The saluting crowds of 1933 become the shocked refugees of 1945. The text reinforces images of a people victimized by a regime whose promises obscured its evil. Recommended for general collections.
