About the Author

Frances Guerin is lecturer of film studies at the University of Kent, Canterbury. She is the author of A Culture of Light: Cinema and Technology in 1920s Germany (Minnesota, 2005) and coeditor of The Image and the Witness: Trauma, Memory, and Visual Culture.


"Through Amateur Eyes is a creative study of amateur photographs in the Nazi era. Full of insightful analysis and broad, interdisciplinary reading, Frances Guerin demonstrates the instability of images, showing how even photographs taken with the perpetrators' eyes and cameras can teach us much about the lives of the Third Reich's victims." -Eric D. Weitz, author of Weimar Germany: Promise and Tragedy
