Annemarie Schwarzenbach: Journey to Africa May 1941- March 1942

Note: Annemarie Schwarzenbach wrote some of her captions in English. These have been kept, even when misspelt, and are shown in quotation marks. All other captions were translated from the German. Some of Schwarzenbach’s vocabulary would not be considered politically correct usage today, but was perfectly correct at the time of her writing. To keep the spirit of the times, these German terms were rendered by their English equivalents (e.g. English "negro" for "afro-american"). N.B.: the photographs taken by Annemarie Schwarzenbach are public domain.
