Witnesses to History
For almost 40 years, Holocaust survivors have shared their life stories with visitors at the Montreal Holocaust Museum. In 2019, a photography project was launched to celebrate the exceptional contributions of these witnesses to history and keepers of memory. The Museum’s Commemoration and Oral History Coordinator, Eszter Andor, and Photographer Stéphanie Cousineau were given the mission to meet with thirty survivors in the privacy of their homes.
Each visit offered a special opportunity to share memories and discover precious personal possessions. Through images and testimonies, the exhibition offers a sensitive and multi-faceted look at extraordinary life trajectories.
