‘Inventur—Art in Germany, 1943–55’ at Harvard Art Museums (9 February–3 June), is a no-frills, tough exhibition.
Its title is taken from a Günter Eich poem written in 1945, the word ‘inventur’ meaning inventory or stocktaking, both physical and moral.
It was 14,892 tons, with a length of 550 feet and a beam of 67 feet.
It was powered by two, four-cylinder triple expansion steam turbine engines driving three propellers, giving it a top speed of 18.5 knots, capable of outrunning any submarine.
