This is a tribute to some of those who survived and built their lives in Ireland. Four members of the community immortalised in portraiture, whose lives have served as an example that the human spirit can stand against brutality. Their portraits tell the story.

“The Holocaust is a subject that is often exploited in art for horror and controversy, or sentimentalised for entertainment. But the reality of the Holocaust is not in the imagination of an artist. It is through the survivors that we know about the genocide at all. It is through their accounts that we begin to understand what was lost, and how far we have come.”
