Stephen Fry Keeps Shoah Survivors’ Stories Alive through Art

Stephen Fry

 

Stephen Fry and other artists are being paired with Holocaust survivors to communicate their stories in new ways, with the intention of keeping the memories alive, as reported by Jewishnewsonline.

Stephen Fry interviewed Anita Lasker Wallfisch, aged 89, who is the last survivor from the Women’s orchestra at Auschwitz. Anita, a cellist, spoke at length with Fry, who will create a written work based on the conversation.

The project, called “Memory Makers” is part of Holocaust Memorial Day, and the goal is to tell the stories of survivors through art in various forms. Stephen Fry said, “The grotesque and growing spectre of  Holocaust denial makes it more and more urgent for the young, now so many generations separated from the Shoah, to listen to those who went through it and understand the meaning of it. How else can this repetition–against any racial or any other group in society–be prevented?”

Other artists involved in the project include filmakers, poets, sculptors and illustrators. The works of art will be unveiled in January 2015.
