Holocaust Survivors in Argentina

Photo-testimony of the Holocaust survivors who arrived to Argentina after the Second World War.

Photojournalist Pablo Cuarterolo has compiled portraits and memories of the Holocaust survivors in Argentina for an exhibition that leads us on a visual travel through some traces from the Second World War. Cuarterolo captured the ruins of the concentration camps as a metaphor that reflects the suffering of the post-war generations that arrived in Argentina seeking a new life. This collection of color photographs documents the past and the present of those survivors that chose Argentina as a place to call home.
