Last year Kate Middleton invited two survivors to Kensington Palace to capture their images alongside their grandchildren. Now, these pictures become featured in a poignant display for honoring their legacy.
The Imperial War Museum London opened a gallery featuring 50 contemporary portraits of Holocaust survivors and their families named “Generations: Portraits of Holocaust Survivors”
The museum shared a statement, “While offering a space to remember and share their stories, these portraits are a celebration of the rich lives they have lived and the special legacy which their children and grandchildren will carry into the future.” Kate expressed that she feels honored to be part of the exhibition.
The Duchess of Cambridge said, “The harrowing atrocities of the Holocaust, which were caused by the most unthinkable evil, will forever lay heavy in our hearts. Yet it is so often through the most unimaginable adversity that the most remarkable people flourish. Despite unbelievable trauma at the start of their lives, Yvonne Bernstein and Steven Frank are two of the most life-affirming people that I have had the privilege to meet.”
