Survivor : A Portrait of the Survivors of the Holocaust Hardback

Hardback

Description

'A masterpiece and deeply moving' - Alain de Botton'A wonderful piece of work' - Lynn Barber"...something really to behold, a substantial project of some real depth and authority.

By flicking through the pages you can sense the amount of research, patience and hard work that has been invested.

The portraits, as always with Borden are simple, effective and very telling." - Martin ParrSurvivor is a unique and powerful testimony of what it is to live with memories of the Holocaust. Over the course of five years, acclaimed photographer Harry Borden has travelled the globe photographing survivors of the Holocaust.

The people featured vary in age, gender and nationality, but are all tied together by their experience and survival of one of the darkest moments in human history. Each photograph is accompanied by a handwritten note from the sitter, ranging from poems, to memories, to hopes for the future, creating a strong sense of intimacy between sitter and reader. At the end of the book is a section providing more information about the person in each portrait, and about how and what they survived, together with the historical context of the events they lived through.

Thought-provoking and touching, this book conveys the dignity and humanity of each subject's character.
