FACING THE PAST - A photographic exhibition of Holocaust survivors by Simon Shiff
To mark its 30th year, the Jewish Holocaust Centre is paying tribute to all the Holocaust survivors who have volunteered their time to make the Centre the vibrant, award-winning museum and educational institution it has become.
Facing the Past - the work of photographer Simon Shiff - is an exhibition of black and white photographic portraits of Holocaust survivors who are still active at the Holocaust Centre, 75 years since the start of the Second World War and since their lives changed irrevocably. Also included are brief personal histories and photographs of the survivors in their youth.
As part of the annual Lodz Ghetto Commemoration to be held at the Jewish Holocaust Centre on Sunday morning 31 August, an online interactive exhibition will be launched, titled Lodz: Strength of Hope.
The online presentation comprises rescued documents and photographs from the World War Two period combined with eyewitness testimony to bring the experience of surviving the horrors of the Lodz Ghetto to life.
