The Imperial War Museum North is to open a new exhibition for Holocaust Memorial Day. From Friday 27 January, the Imperial War Museum North will be hosting an exhibition which brings together over 60 photographs of Holocaust survivors and their families taken over the last couple of years.

Generations: Portraits of Holocaust Survivors opens on Holocaust Memorial Day and features four new additions picturing north-west survivors alongside works by 13 contemporary photographers.

These pictures capture the connections between Holocaust survivors and the younger generations of their families, to show the full lives they have lived since the war ended. We visited the museum ahead of opening day to get a glimpse of these powerful portraits.
