Holocaust Memorial Day & Portraits for Prosperity – October/November TBC
To commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day, and in celebration of the exciting Portraits for Posterity exhibition, which is coming to the Cathedral, the National Memorial Arborteum and South Staffordshire College, local people will mark this momentus occassion.
More about Portraits for Posterity is a unique photographic exhibition drawn from survivors of the Holocaust living in Great Britain today. Very few survived the ghettos, extermination and labour camps of the Nazi regime. Those alive today are now elderly, but still bear witness to ‘the crime of the 20th century’. By creating images of the few survivors, the exhibit provides a permanent memorial that also commemorates the millions who perished without portraits.
This moving exhibition is coming to Lichfield District this autumn, and will be on show at the Cathedral, the National Memorial Arboretum and South Staffordshire College between 11 October and 15 November. To find out more visit www.portraitsforposterity.com
