Overview of this campaign

It all started when Isa von Heyl got her hands on old tapes – the recordings of phone calls between journalist Gerd Heidemann and the forger Konrad Kujau.

Instead of writing an article about the this dark chapter in magazines history, Isa von Heyl and Malte Herwig saw the potential in the new found material. What followed was over a year of hard work and an extremely innovative multimedia documentary.


Results for this campaign

Ten articles, three videos, photo galleries and a 10-episode Podcast.
The multimedia documentary reappraises the history of the fake Hitler diaries.
