Holocaust Survivors by Dennis Darling


These images were taken by Austin-based photographer Dennis Darling. These photos of some of the last living Holocaust survivors are part of his documentary project called Families Gone to Ash. This group of individuals in particular were held at Terezin concentration camp, located in what is now Czech Republic. I would love to see more of his work, but Darling lives under the radar, with very little web presence.

From Dennis Darling:

“There are lessons to be learned from these people and compelling reasons to document as much as possible before the last living memory becomes irretrievable. … This act of recording living history about to vanish has shaped much of my career as a photographer and has fueled a lifelong interest in history.”
