About this title


SURVIVORS is a special work of art that radiates optimism and vitality. Aliza Auerbach s unique photo essay highlights the cycle of life and its wonders. It shows, in color photographs, the children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren that sprang from a single Holocaust survivor, alongside black and white portraits of the survivors as they are today, with their autobiographies. The emphasis is on hope, on the miracle of rehabilitation, the power of survival, and the unbelievable wonder of continuity, in spite of everything. The variety of families in this documentary album shows us the magnitude of loss: not only of the six million who were murdered, but also their future families. The families portrayed in this book run the gamut from families of two children and two grandchildren to families with dozens of children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren; families from all facets of Judaism, from ultra-Orthodox to secular and everything in between; those living in the city and those living on kibbutzim; a diverse, thriving, flourishing group of people. This book manifests the courage and determination, the willpower and the strength of the survivors. It is a dynamic testimony to the power of the human spirit.

About the Author:

Aliza Auerbach was born in Israel and studied philosophy and Bible at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. She began taking still photographs for international movie productions, then turned to photojournalism. Her work has been published in Haaretz, Jerusalem Post, New York Times, and The Times of London, among others. In 1989 she turned to art photography. Her prize-winning photographs can be found in the collections of the Israel Museum, Tel-Aviv Museum, Ein Harod Museum, the Museum of Israeli Art, the Museum on the Seam, Tel Chai Photography Museum, and in private collections all over the world. Aliza s books include The Poems of Jerusalem, with Yehuda Amichai (1987), Mothers on Earth (1997), Women at Work (2003), and The Song of the Sea (2007). The album Nitzolim (Survivors, 2010) is the third part of a trilogy that includes Rishonim (Pioneers, 1990) and Olim (New Immigrants, 1992). Aliza lives in Jerusalem with her husband Gideon Ofrat, a researcher, curator, and historian of Israeli art. Their daughter, Eden Auerbach Ofrat, is a video artist.
