Included in Parr and Badger, The Photobook: A History, vol. III
A remarkable volume compiled from Bertolt Brecht's collection of wartime newspaper clippings, gathered during his exile in Denmark. Each accompanied by a four-line poem that he called 'photo-epigrams'. "In December 1944 Brecht and his collaborator, Ruth Berlau, assembled the photoepigrams...[and] mounted [them] on hand-cut sheets of black construction paper... It is quite likely that Berlau herself reproduced the photographs from images that Brecht found in various publications, including Life magazine and Swedish and American newspapers.; In 1944 Brecht presented this miniature copy of Kriegsfibel to Lion Feuchtwanger, his longtime friend, mentor, and collaborator and a fellow German exile living in Southern California. Brecht sent another copy to his friend Karl Korsch in February 1945; whether additional copies were created or still exist is unknown. In 1949, after Brecht returned to Germany, he and Berlau assembled the Kriegsfibel for publication; it did not appear, however, until the fall of 1955."--USC Digital Library
