A Message From PTP

A small selection of images from last night's fascinating event in aid of the Yad Vashem UK Foundation. Renowned sculpture artist Frances Segelman has begun a project to immortalise survivors of the Holocaust by producing bust sculptures which will ultimately reside in the Yad Vashem museum in Israel. Last night she spent almost 2hours sculpturing the head of Ben Helfgott MBE - a survivor of Buchenwald and Theresienstadt concentration camps who later went on to represent GB at the 1956 and 1960 Olympics in weightlifting. As a Trustee of the Holocaust Educational Trust as well as many other bodies Ben still dedicates his time to keeping the lessons of the Holocaust relevant for current generations.
