Exhibition: Portraits for Posterity

Portraits for Posterity is a photographic exhibition appearing in Alexandra Palace’s East Court, that captures the personal recollections of twelve Nazi Holocaust Survivors, documenting their lives in Britain after one of the most dramatic events in the history of humankind. The exhibit was developed and curated by Jacki Reason and Jan Marsh and photographed by award-winning photographer Matt Writtle. The project was started in 2007. Over the following four years 101 Survivors were photographed and interviewed. By creating images of the few, the exhibit commemorates the millions without portraits.

The exhibition is part of the numerous events and initiatives by a range of organisations commemorating Holocaust Memorial Day on the 27th January.

Exhibition is free and open daily (2-5pm) except Thursday 30th January.
