Acquisition: photos taken by German soldiers in the Netherlands
On show in the Phillips Wing of the Rijksmuseum until 13 June 2007

The Rijksmuseum Amsterdam has acquired eleven photo albums containing amateur photos taken by German soldiers during the occupation of the Netherlands (1940-1945). Dating from the early years of the war, most of the albums contain 'snaps' of the soldiers' daily lives. The albums not only depict such primary themes as the day-to-day army routine, outings with comrades and places of interest in the Netherlands, they also reflect the victor's perspective. The Rijksmuseum has also acquired a collection of over 200 individual photos taken by German soldiers in the Netherlands from a private owner. The museum intends to exhibit these albums and photos as part of its presentation of works from the 20th century following the reopening of the museum's main building.
