28 October - 9 November: Moving Portraits Exhibition

Holocaust Memorial Day Trust presents an exhibition of Moving Portraits of six survivors of genocide who now live in the UK. The collection draws upon the significance of memory, photographing survivors holding a belonging that is evocative for them.

These moments in time have been brought to life in an extraordinary way by artist Will Head, turning them from still images into Moving Portraits. This launches the first part of our exciting #MemoryMakers creative project for HMD 2015, which explores the experiences of those who have survived genocide through the arts.

Explore the Moving Portraits of Avram and Vera Schaufeld, Joan Salter, Sokphal Din, Eric Murangwa and Safet Vukalić, finding out what they went through during genocide and why their object helps to keep the memory alive.
