The Duchess of Cambridge has photographed two Holocaust survivors, Steven Frank and Yvonne Bernstein, with their grandchildren, to mark Holocaust Memorial Day. Taken at Kensington Palace the pictures will feature in an exhibition marking 75 years since the end of the Holocaust.

Truly a special project and beautiful photographs. What an amazing surprise from Catherine! Also, a few words from DoC on the subject:

Quote:
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. They look back on their experiences with sadness but also with gratitude that they were some of the lucky few to make it through. Their stories will stay with me forever. Whilst I have been lucky enough to meet two of the now very few survivors I recognise not everyone in the future will be able to hear these stories first hand. It is vital that their memories are preserved and passed on to future generations, so that what they went through will never be forgotten.

One of the most moving accounts I read as a young girl was ‘The Diary of Anne Frank’ which tells a very personal reflection of life under Nazi occupation from a child’s perspective. Her sensitive and intimate interpretation of the horrors of the time was one of the underlying inspirations behind the images.

I wanted to make the portraits deeply personal to Yvonne and Steven – a celebration of family and the life that they have built since they both arrived in Britain in the 1940s. The families brought items of personal significance with them which are included in the photographs.

It was a true honour to have been asked to participate in this project and I hope in some way Yvonne and Steven’s memories will be kept alive as they pass the baton to the next generation.
Catherine is out there doing great stuff after the winter break, hopefully this trend continues this year, it's a huge pleasure to see her projects.

I always said I wished she would use her photography for more then pictures of her kids. That the skill could easily be used in her work during her behind the scenes work not visits. Glad to see them doing it.

These pictures and the thoughtfulness behind them have really showcased her talent. Hope we see more of this too.

Also, for those of you who want to get a "behind the scenes" look, there's this blog post:
https://blogs.timesofisrael.com/the-...r-remembrance/


It talks about the idea for the photographs, preparation and Catherine's personal involvement in the project - it seems she devoted a lot of her time to make sure it would be done right.
