    Her Legacy

    "If I don't photograph it, it won't be known," was her guiding principle. The power of her pictures lies in the gift of recognising what is special in a moment and showing what the machinery of war does to the people affected. [ . . . ]

Welcome

Thank you for visiting the website of Forum Anja Niedringhaus in Höxter.

To create a cultural institution with charisma, has made the Association Forum Anja Niedringhaus. We would like to honor the memory of the murdered photographer Anja Niedringhaus in Afghanistan and revive the historic Tillyhaus, part of the urban Adelshof in Westerbachstraße in Höxter. Through events that stimulate the artistic and scientific examination of the causes and consequences of crises, conflicts and wars, flight and migration, awareness is to be awakened for the topics that were important to Anja Niedringhaus.
