Stars Without A Heaven Children In The Holocaust

The Forum, Southend-on-Sea

One of the Holocaust Memorial Day Exhibitions 

This exhibition is dedicated to the unique stories of children during the Holocaust. During a period when Jewish communities underwent social and familial upheaval, children living in this reality essentially lost their childhood. It presents a collection of anecdotes, narratives and memories of Jewish children caught up in the crucible of the Holocaust.

The drawings, poems, letters and toys displayed in this exhibition demonstrate the unique capacity of children to hold on to the forces of life, creativity, imagination, and optimism, despite facing dire circumstances.
