Holokausti ohvrite rahvusvahelisel mälestuspäeal avaldatud pildid on osa näitusest, mis sel aastal avatakse ning mis näitab 75 inimest, kes 75 aastat tagasi õudused üle elasid ning omale uue elu Inglismaal ehitanud on.

Hertsoginna kirjutab piltide juurde, et on tänulik, et ta osaks sellest projektist sai ning lisab: "Tahtsin teha need portreed väga isiklikud Steveni ja Yvonne'i jaoks - tähistamaks perekonda ja elu, mille nad on ehitanud alates saabumisest Suurbritanniasse 40ndatel aastatale. Pered tõid ka isikliku tähtusega esemed, mis on pildilgi kaasatud."

Esimesel pildil on Steven Frank oma lapselaste Maggie ja Trixie'ga. Koos oma ema ja vendadega saadeti Steven Westerborki vahelaagrsse ja siis Theresienstadti ning tema ja ta vennad olid kolm last 93st, kes 15 000 sinnasaadetust vaid pääsesid.

Teisel portreel kujutab Kate Yvonne Bernsteini oma lapselapse Chloe'ga, kes oma tädi ja onuga Prantsusmaal peidus oli, pidevalt reisis, nime vahetama ja kolima pidi.

As part of the commemorations for the 75th anniversary of the end of the Holocaust, The Duchess of Cambridge has taken photographs of two Holocaust survivors with their grandchildren. The first photograph features Steven Frank with his granddaughters, Maggie and Trixie. Alongside his mother and brothers, Steven was sent to Westerbork transit camp then to Theresienstadt. Steven and his brothers were 3 of only 93 children who survived the camp - 15,000 children were sent there. The Duchess also photographed Yvonne Bernstein with her granddaughter Chloe. Yvonne was a hidden child in France, travelling in the care of her aunt and uncle and frequently changing homes and names. The Duchess said: “I wanted to make the portraits deeply personal to Yvonne and Steven – a celebration of family and the life that they have built since they both arrived in Britain in the 1940s. The families brought items of personal significance with them which are included in the photographs. It was a true honour to have been asked to participate in this project and I hope in some way Yvonne and Steven’s memories will be kept alive as they pass the baton to the next generation.” The portraits will form part of a new exhibition opening later this year by @holocaustmemorialdaytrust, Jewish News and @royalphotographicsociety , which will feature 75 images of survivors and their family members. The exhibition will honour the victims of the Holocaust and celebrate the full lives that survivors have built in the UK, whilst inspiring people to consider their own responsibility to remember and share the stories of those who endured Nazi persecution.

Hiljem avalikustas Kate ka kaadritagused pildid, mis näitavad, kui imearmsalt ta oma pildistatavatega aega veetis, enne kui imelised näitusepildid sündisid.
