The task of this article is to scrutinize cognitive, social, and hegemonic aspects of the contemporary use of documentary footage and photography related to genocidal events, and more specifically with regard to the extermination of the European Jews under National Socialism. The aim of this scrutiny is to gain insight into the kind of cross-media support that every image requires in this context. The study wants to demonstrate that historical images can only be adequately understood by relating them to a combination of other images, elucidating texts, and the comments and statements of witnesses.

Keywords: Harun Farocki (b. 1944); Hegemonic Aspects of Images; Holocaust Studies; Media Theory
