Survivors: Faces of Life after the Holocaust

The exhibition „Survivors“ will take place from 5.September.2021 – 20.February. 2022 at the Fotomuseum aan het Vrijthof in the Netherlands.


As can already be seen in the title of the event, it is about survivors,survivors of the Holocaust who survived the Second World War and the loss of love, family, community or home.
These survivors are of special significance. They have chosen to rebuild their lives despite what happened and forge absolutely no revenge. This was proof of the values of universal morality and strong faith in the human soul.


„Survivors: Faces of Life after the Holocaust, is a series of 75 portraits taken by the German photographer Martin Schöller. He took them in 2019 and 2020 as part of the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the
Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp. These unique photos shine the spotlight on the people portrayed, who are looking straight into the camera. People whose tragic memories are grounded into their bodies and souls for all time. And yet, at the same time, their portraits also revealed their hope for a better future.“


The exhibition consists so far of the images of the portrait photographer, Martin Schoeller. Martin S. specialized a lot in the field of photography and learned a lot of knowledge through his studies in the Latvian Association and through his stay in New York, where his career finally began.
