Less than 10% of Jewish children survived the Holocaust.
‘Tribute: Child Survivors of the Holocaust’ shows the lives of child survivors through the medium of a painted portrait and a sketch of the sitter as a young child.
“In these portraits and sketches I have tried to describe the sitter’s journey: what’s been lost and also what’s been found,” says Jeffrey Kelson. “This exhibition is a tribute to the children these survivors once were and to the lives they went on to build. I hope it also raises questions about children in war zones and suffering persecution today.”
