Legacy: Portraits of Holocaust Survivors

Document | Accession Number: 1995.A.1205

Legacy: Portraits of Holocaust Survivors is a project began by Evvy Eisen in 1992, which seeks to photograph Holocaust survivors and accompany their portraits with a biography of their life during the Holocaust. The portraits are taken in black and white silver gelatin prints. While most of the portraits are 11x14, some of the later years are 8x11. The biographies are generally several pages long, and tell the stories of each individual’s story through the Holocaust. The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum accepted Eisen’s first donation in 1995, and accepted donations annually until 2006.
