Portraits for Posterity – Photographs of Holocaust Survivors in Great Britain


Portraits for Posterity is a unique project comprising photographic portraits of Survivors of the Nazi Holocaust who made their homes in Great Britain.

Beginning in late 2007, in close liaison with London’s Holocaust Survivor community, photographer Matt Writtle, curator Jan Marsh and project manager Jacki Reason produced thirty portraits, which were exhibited at London’s City Hall, UK. Following the exhibition’s successful reception, the project was expanded to include Survivors living across Great Britain, with a total of 101 portraits being exhibited at a range of locations nationwide.
