HRH’s survivor portraits project statement

Olivia Marks-Woldman OBE, Chief Executive of Holocaust Memorial Day Trust, said of the project:

‘We are delighted that His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, our Patron, has commissioned this amazing and hugely important work. We were delighted to play a small part in facilitating elements of this wonderful project, and bring Holocaust survivors together with these wonderful artists.

The Holocaust stands as a stark reminder of unimaginable human barbarity, and it is our collective responsibility to learn from the experiences of those who survived it. These drawings sensitively and brilliantly capture the individuality of survivors, and we hope that they will inspire many people to learn more about the Holocaust and reflect on the contribution that Holocaust survivors make to Britain today.’
