text: Above and beyond the Bauhaus, the city of Dessau was a culminating point of industrial modernity / Over the 13 years of the Nazi regime, the city experienced an unparalleled rise and fall which has marked it to this day / Dessau was an armaments metropolis, Gau capital, ‘company town’ for Junkers’ aircraft and engine factories, and the main production site of the poison gas Zyklon B, with which hundreds of thousands of people were murdered in the concentration camps / This volume tells the contradictory history of the Bauhaus town under National Socialism / It looks back on the relationships of the devastation and is dedicated to destroying modern as well as their destructive potentials / 39 recordings of French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson, who held with his camera in June 1945 in Dessau the return of the forced laborers, were completed with many previously unpublished photos round of this era //
