Fragments: Portraits of Survivors
July 3, 2014 - October 14, 2014-
The photographs are just a moment – a fragment of a life shattered by visions too graphic to imagine. Over 65 years have passed, and now Jason Schwartz, freelance photographer from Toronto, Canada, has captured the expressions of memories of Holocaust Survivors. A sliver of time encapsulated in a photograph, and a short, personal handwritten statement of triumph accompany each. “I survived… I beat Hitler.” is just one of the testimonies that speak of the indomitable human spirit.
The exhibition includes 112 photographs of Survivors. The stark black and white images are reflections of time and history. Each 16 x 20 study contains a carefully worded and handwritten statement by the Survivor and captures the essence of an individual whose life was ultimately changed by WWII.
Fragments is a traveling exhibition of The Florida Holocaust Museum.
