More information about the people shown in the film can be found on Nina Paley’s blog, or, to quote the artist: “Because you can’t tell the players without a pogrom!”
From 12 February until the end of May 2012, the Militärhistorische Museum (MHM, Military-Historical Museum of the Bundeswehr1) in Dresden will show the exhibition “Krieg” (war) with photographs by James Nachtwey.
