    Jantarnyi 2001- Palmnicken 1945 Videofilm auf der Moscow Art Fair (raketa, 2001)






The subject of the film is the massacre from the last days of January 1945. More than three thousand Jewish women, prisoners from concentration camps, were pushed on the road from Königsberg to Palmnicken where they were forced into the Baltic Sea and shot.
The texts read in English and Russian are testimonies of survivors which are confronted with the winter scenery of today's emptiness. Raketa artist group made this short videofilm during a trip from Kaliningrad to Jantarnyi on February 3, 2001.
