Mapping the Production of Death
This exploration has been pursued in cooperation with the Mittelbau Dora Memorial at Nordhausen, which has granted access to the digitized "Totenbuch" (Register of Deaths) of the Mittelbau Dora Concentration Camp.
We used this data to build a time/space model of the "production of death" (Jens Christian Wagner) which projected onto the contexts of origins of victims rather than the place of death to visualize
(a) the changing sociogeographic profile of the victims and
(b) connections between the places vicitms came from and a killing site,
(c) the specific profiles of killing sites/concentration camps with regard to the origins of the people incarcerated or murdered there.
