This special display has been commissioned by His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales to pay tribute to the stories of seven remarkable Holocaust survivors, each of whom has in recent years been honoured for services to Holocaust awareness and education.

The Prince of Wales, who is Patron of the National Holocaust Memorial Day Trust, commissioned seven leading artists to paint the portraits as a living memorial to the six million innocent men, women and children who lost their lives in the Holocaust and whose stories will never be told. The profoundly moving portraits, which will become part of the Royal Collection, stand as a powerful testament to the extraordinary resilience and courage of those who survived.

The sitters and artists are:

Helen Aronson painted by Paul Benney
Lily Ebert painted by Ishbel Myerscough
Manfred Goldberg painted by Clara Drummond
Arek Hersh painted by Massimiliano Pironti
Anita Lasker-Wallfisch painted by Peter Kuhfeld
Rachel Levy painted by Stuart Pearson Wright
Zigi Shipper painted by Jenny Saville
