From the first page- "Shimon Attie began the Finstere Medine photography project in late 1991. In this project, he has slide-projected portions of pre-war photographs of Jewish street life in the Eastern part of Berlin onto the same locations today. By using slide projection on location he has introduced fragments of the past into the visual field of the present. Thus parts of long destroyed Jewish community life were visually simulated, momentarily recreated."
