Mapping Memories & Places

In 2012 I started Mapping Memories & Places. I researched the life and the times of my grandfather, Paul Blumenthal (1897-1982). I was especially interested in the impact of politics on his personal life and tried to relate these to my own experiences. I followed literally his footsteps, retracing his routes and experiences, mainly through Germany, Indonesia, U.S and the Netherlands. These travels I have documented in drawings, diaries, letters, collages and photographs. A first scetch I brought together in a PDFfile or in a book on demand
