Bettine Le Beau

Bettine Le Beau

Collage artist Martin O’Neill and animator Andrew Griffin met Holocaust survivor Bettine Le Beau at her north London home, as part of the HMD 2015 Memory Makers project.

Bettine survived the Holocaust in France as a child, and went on to become a Bond girl and film star. Martin and Bettine had a wide-ranging discussion on happiness, education and working with young people – and how hope can overcome hatred. Bettine died in September 2015.

This is Martin and Andrew’s visual and animated response to Bettine’s story.
