Generations: Portraits of Holocaust Survivors


Over 60 contemporary portraits of Holocaust survivors and their families shine a light on the full lives they have lived and our collective responsibility to cherish their stories.

"Packs a colossal emotional punch" - The Daily Telegraph.

A showcase of works from 13 contemporary photographers, all members and Fellows of the Royal Photographic Society (RPS), alongside photography by RPS patron, Her Royal Highness The Princess of Wales. The exhibition will also feature four new photographs by President of the RPS, Simon Hill. 

These powerful photographs capture the special connections between Holocaust survivors and the younger generations of their families.

The systematic persecution of Europe’s Jews by the Nazis between 1933 and 1945 led to the mass extermination of 6 million lives. For those who survived, its memory and impact were life changing.

Through a series of individual and family portraits, the moving photographs in this exhibition present a group of survivors who made the UK their home after beginnings marked by unimaginable loss and trauma. While offering a space to remember and share their stories, these portraits are a celebration of the rich lives they have lived and the special legacy which their children and grandchildren will carry into the future.

Photographers include Frederic Aranda, Sian Bonnell, Jillian Edelstein, Arthur Edwards, Anna Fox, Joy Gregory, Jane Hilton, Tom Hunter, Karen Knorr, Carolyn Mendelsohn, Simon Roberts, Michelle Sank, Simon Hill and HRH The Princess of Wales.
