Useful Cinema in the Soviet Union. Visual Registers in Still and Moving Images on the Nazi Crime Traces (1941–1945)

Presentation by Irina Tcherneva at the NECS Conference

The presentation aims to reflect on the paradoxical applications of useful film and photography in the conditions of armed conflict.

In the course of the liberation of the territories occupied by the Wehrmacht, Soviet documentary film-makers and photographers generated a considerable visual corpus. Its nature is fundamentally twofold: some of the images were intended for institutional use by investigators into the Nazis crimes who collected evidence, and some were used by the wartime media.
