Portraits for Posterity by Matt Writtle is a unique photographic project. With individual portraits of survivors of the Nazi Holocaust living in Britain today who still bear witness to the crime of the century, the exhibition both celebrates their contribution to British society and commemorates the millions who perished.
The exhibition is open from 10am to 6pm on Saturday 29 January and from 10am to 5pm on Sunday 30 January.
At 12noon photographer Matt Writtle and Curator Jan Marsh will open the photographic exhibition and explain their motivation for the project.
