Your Legacy and Me

Discover Your Legacy and Me, a creative project exploring the legacy of the Holocaust, created by the Holocaust Educational Trust’s young ambassadors.

Following a visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau and hearing first hand testimony from a Holocaust survivor, the young ambassadors were tasked with ensuring the Holocaust is remembered for generations; sharing their experiences and defending the truth of the past.

Inspired by the overlay work in our recent Charlotte Salomon: Life? or Theatre? exhibition and responding to photographs of Holocaust Survivors Solly Irving, Gerta Vrbova, Jackie Young and Elsa Shamash, the young ambassadors created thoughtful pieces of legacy art that consider the relevance of the Holocaust today.

These pieces were created over a two-day workshop hosted by the Jewish Museum London, Jami, Holocaust Educational Trust and Jackie Young.
