    If I do not take pictures, it will not be known,” was her motto. The power of her images lies in the gift of recognizing the special in one specific moment and to show what the machinery of war with the affected people does. [ . . . ]

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.
