In October 2014 I had the honour of meeting Auschwitz survivor Ivor Perl, and hearing about his life. This animation, commissioned by the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust's Memory Makers project tells parts of his story alongside reflecting on the scale of the tragedy that was the Holocaust.
It is impossible to sum up his life and experiences in a short animation, but I hope that hearing Ivor speak touches people as it has touched me.
The animation is a collage of hand drawn animation, portraits of Ivor and photographic images. It uses excerpts from Ivor's testimony and my own words as narration.
