The new Fotografiska For Life exhibition Fading Stories – pass them on exhibited at Fotografiska Stockholm uses an app to display the portraits of 23 different holocaust survivors that have been photographed and interviewed by photographer Sanna Sjöswärd. 15 of the portraits are shown on screens in the exhibition, and the remaining eight are displayed on TVs. Combined, the photographs strike the beholder with a troubled message, and all the material can later be found in the app. In the exhibition material, survivors talk of their memories of the Holocaust.
Some of them have hardly ever shared their stories before, while others went public with their horrific experiences several years ago – in order to share their knowledge and the insight that we must all help to ensure that history is not repeated.
