Holocaust Memorial Day exhibition

First published in Entertainments by

A HOLOCAUST Memorial Day exhibition is being held at Studio 53 in Salisbury from January 25 to 27.

The theme is journeys, and the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust is asking people to consider the journeys those affected by genocide have been forced to make, and what steps we can all make towards creating a safer future.

The exhibition of artwork by Salisbury artist Simon Shaw will commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Kindertransport.

The Kindertransport was a humanitarian programme, which ran between November 1938 and September 1939.

It saw 10,000 children, the majority of whom were Jewish, sent from their homes and families in Germany, Austria and Czechoslovakia to Britain.

Shaw’s father was one of those children, and his artwork explores the places, people and time, combining images from just before the start of the Second World War and contemporary photography.
