A project in three parts, the first part comprises portraits of the participants of the Wannsee Conference of 20 January 1942.

The second part consists of six delicately colored pencil drawings which are designed to look like hand colored postcards and depict views of the hospitals in Germany and Austria where the T4 Euthanasia programme took place between 1939 and 1941, whilst the third part consists of five large scale oil paintings which display the insides of Nazi Gas Chambers.

This series is held in the permanent collection of The Museum der Moderne, Salzburg.
