1939–45: Signs of Occupation in Tábor

” — Ninth exhibition of Šechtl & Voseček Museum of Photography.


Josef Jindřich recorded changes in the city during the Nazi occupation on a number of the 35 mm films. He photographed the streets before and after German signs were introduced, the tombs on the New Jewish Cemetery that was destroyed during the war and more.

We have chosen just a few from those interesting documentary photographs.

  1. Photograph of Antonín Švehla memorial in front of the School of Agriculture, shortly before it was removed.
  2. Same square after removal of the memorial.
  3. German signs on Křižík Square after the Lime tree of Liberty was cut down.
  4. Billiard tables in the German House (Deutscher Haus, today again Masaryk House), with a portrait of Adolf Hitler (on the right).
