Dark memories

Munich during the times of Nazi terror. Jewish people were discriminated, beaten up, deported, and murdered. In "Memory loops" entered by the Bavarian radio and the ARD we hear moving reports of victims, transcribed and read by actresses and actors, and historical documents read by children.

"Memory loops" is a radio and web documentary project largely done by the author, composer and designer Michaela Melián. 300 German and 175 English tracks, all of them sound collages presented on an interactive city map or being played as you stroll through Munich's streets, a sombre interactive radio documentary with a huge amount of archive material artfully composed: "Memory loops" is a virtual memorial to the victims of the National Socialist regime.
