    Film Provenance
    Karl Hoeffkes has collected over 2,000 hours of rare original film material documenting the period from 1925 to 1946. The collection consists of mostly amateur footage in both black and white and color that focuses on Europe during the pre-war and mid-war periods. The United States Holocaut Memorial Museum entered a cooperative agreement with Agentur Karl Hoeffkes in April 2015 which enables the Museum to provide access to the entire AKH archive and use the material for future exhibitions, research and scientific purposes, and publications.
    The Great German Art Exhibitions were of central importance for the Nazi policy of art and culture. They demonstrated both the self-image of the ‘Third Reich’ as a nation of culture and the artistic concept of the Nazis. According to the catalogue from 1937, only artistic “peak performances” that “give expression to the greatness of the new era, born from blood and soil, from national socialist attitude and ideology” should be put on display. In total, 12,550 art works (sculpture, paintings and drawings) were offered for sale during the eight exhibitions from 1937 to 1944. Landscape, genre paintings, still lifes, portraits and small sculptures were the prevalent items. Although only a minor number of the works openly functioned as propaganda, all pieces were aligned with the regime’s ideology. Many works were purchased by members of the Nazi elite but a large number were also bought by private collectors.
