To mark Holocaust Memorial Day, we partnered with The Royal Drawing School to launch the [Extra]Ordinary Portraits competition, which asked young people (25 and under) across the UK to learn about someone affected by the Holocaust, genocide or identity-based persecution and create a portrait of them. These portraits cover a wide range of topics, spanning from the Holocaust to examples of modern-day persecution.

View all the portraits in the exhibition gallery here.
