Description

Through Our Eyes is an interactive, multi-media exhibition. Visitors will see poignant personal photos of the survivors and their families and their original artefacts and documents, together with an original prisoner uniform and other artefacts from the concentration camps at Buchenwald and Mittelbau-Dora.

The survivors tell their stories of discrimination, persecution, escape, hiding, ghettos, forced labour, concentration camps and liberation through filmed testimony on six interactive touchscreens. Text and images puts their experiences in context, supported by animated maps and an immersive audio-visual experience driven by survivor testimony. 

There is a reflective space at the end of the exhibition where visitors can find out about the survivors’ experiences of rebuilding their lives in the UK and explore a digital memorial to local families.

The exhibition contains photographs and video footage of concentration camps and atrocities that some visitors may find disturbing. The exhibition is not suitable for young children.
