39 Memory Makers

40 For Holocaust Memorial Day 2015 our Memory Makers project has paired genocide survivors with a range of artists, who are responding to their stories creatively.

41 Memory Makers

42 Memory Makers aims to ensure survivors’ experiences aren’t lost to history, and that a new generation can engage with the stories of genocide.

43 Memory Makers

44 If everyone who is moved by this project shares one story with one person, we will have taken a huge step towards keeping the memory alive.
