n earlier exhibitions in 1989 and 2001, the museum showed the innovative and splendid theater photography of Austria and pictures of reconstruction. Now, a more complete picture of her photography is presented, with many unknown and rediscovered work, including portraits and reportage photography. Very impressive is a series of 150 pictures from the Achterhuis, made in 1954 on behalf of Otto Frank. This new overview of Maria Austria's work is based on research by Martien Frijns, AFdH publisher. Simultaneously with the exhibition, a very comprehensive biographical outline of her life and work appears.

This exhibition was established in collaboration with Martien Frijns, Maria Austria Instituut (MAI) in Amsterdam and Helly Oestreicher. The MAI stores, manages and operates the archives of Maria Austria and many other famous photographers.
