The powerful photographs capture the special connections between Holocaust survivors and the younger generations of their families. The exhibition is a celebration of the rich lives Holocaust survivors have built in the UK and the special legacy their children and grandchildren will carry into the future.

We are proud to have partnered with The Royal Photographic Society, Jewish News, Imperial War Museums and Dangoor Education to create the original exhibition and are delighted to have worked with Jewish News and The Royal Photographic Society to make these stunning photographs accessible to a wider audience online.

Our Chief Executive said:

We owe it to those who were murdered, and those who survived, and even future generations – to keep the memory of the Holocaust alive. We’re thrilled that this online gallery will enable so many more people to view some truly amazing images. This project will ensure that the truth about this chapter history of incomprehensible human evil remains shared and accessible to everyone.
