After its quite successful first performance at Benediktbeuern Abbey in December 2012/January and February 2013, our photo exhibition “The Children of DP Camp Foehrenwald” (“Die Kinder vom Lager Föhrenwald”) moved to Waldram – formerly Föhrenwald – where it stayed in February and March 2013 at the parish of St. Josef der Arbeiter, Steinstrasse 22, 82515 Wolfratshausen-Waldram.
From May to July 2013 the exhibition had a „guest performance“ at the cultural center „Kulturbühne Hinterhalt“ Gelting/Geretsried.
In cooperation with the Cultural Center of the „Israelitische Kultusgemeinde München und Oberbayern“ the documentation went to Munich in February/March 2014. Afterwards, in May 2014, the „Heinrich-Campendonk-Realschule Penzberg“ (Junior High School), Karlstrasse 36, D–82377 Penzberg hosted the show (in cooperation with the Town Museum of Penzberg).
