Kate Middleton comparte fotos en Instagram de dos sobrevivientes del Holocausto con sus nietos

El Príncipe William, de 37 años, y su esposa Kate Middleton, de 38, están activos en redes sociales. El domingo y el lunes, como parte de las conmemoraciones por el 75 aniversario del fin del horror de Auschwitz, la duquesa de Cambridge compartió en su Instagram @KensingtonRoyal fotografías de dos sobrevivientes del Holocausto con sus nietos.

En la publicación, la madre real mostró a Steven Frank con sus nietas, Maggie y Trixie. «Junto con su madre y sus hermanos, Steven fue enviado al campamento de tránsito de Westerbork y luego a Theresienstadt. Steven y sus hermanos fueron 3 de solo 93 niños que sobrevivieron al campamento: 15,000 niños fueron enviados allí», dice la leyenda.

La segunda imagen es de Yvonne Bernstein con su nieta Chloe. Según el texto, «Yvonne era una niña escondida en Francia, viajaba bajo el cuidado de su tía y tío y frecuentemente cambiaba de hogar y de nombre». La realeza expuso: «Quería que los retratos fueran muy personales para Yvonne y Steven, una celebración de la familia y la vida que han construido desde que ambos llegaron a Gran Bretaña en la década de 1940».

As part of the commemorations for the 75th anniversary of the end of the Holocaust, The Duchess of Cambridge has taken photographs of two Holocaust survivors with their grandchildren. The first photograph features Steven Frank with his granddaughters, Maggie and Trixie. Alongside his mother and brothers, Steven was sent to Westerbork transit camp then to Theresienstadt. Steven and his brothers were 3 of only 93 children who survived the camp – 15,000 children were sent there. The Duchess also photographed Yvonne Bernstein with her granddaughter Chloe. Yvonne was a hidden child in France, travelling in the care of her aunt and uncle and frequently changing homes and names. The Duchess said: “I wanted to make the portraits deeply personal to Yvonne and Steven – a celebration of family and the life that they have built since they both arrived in Britain in the 1940s. The families brought items of personal significance with them which are included in the photographs. It was a true honour to have been asked to participate in this project and I hope in some way Yvonne and Steven’s memories will be kept alive as they pass the baton to the next generation.” The portraits will form part of a new exhibition opening later this year by @holocaustmemorialdaytrust, Jewish News and @royalphotographicsociety , which will feature 75 images of survivors and their family members. The exhibition will honour the victims of the Holocaust and celebrate the full lives that survivors have built in the UK, whilst inspiring people to consider their own responsibility to remember and share the stories of those who endured Nazi persecution.

Para la elaboración de las instantáneas, las familias trajeron consigo elementos de importancia personal que se incluyen en las escenas. «Fue un verdadero honor haber sido invitado a participar en este proyecto y espero que de alguna manera los recuerdos de Yvonne y Steven se mantengan vivos mientras pasan el testigo a la próxima generación», indicó Middleton.

Los retratos serán parte de la nueva exposición que prepara Holocaust Memorial Day Trust, Jewish News y The Royal Photographic Society que presentará 75 imágenes de sobrevivientes y sus familiares. En la cuenta de la pareja real dice: «La exposición honrará a las víctimas del Holocausto y celebrará la vida plena que los sobrevivientes han construido en el Reino Unido, mientras inspira a las personas a considerar su propia responsabilidad de recordar y compartir las historias de quienes sufrieron la persecución nazi».

Today is #HolocaustMemorialDay, which takes place each year on the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, and honours survivors of the Holocaust, Nazi Persecution, and subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur. Earlier this month, The Duchess of Cambridge met two Holocaust survivors, Steven Frank and Yvonne Bernstein, as she took photographs for a project by @holocaustmemorialdaytrust, Jewish News and @royalphotographicsociety to mark 75 years since the end of the Holocaust. The Duchess’s photographs will be included in an exhibition of 75 images of survivors and their family members, which will open later this year. “The harrowing atrocities of the Holocaust, which were caused by the most unthinkable evil, will forever lay heavy in our hearts. Yet it is so often through the most unimaginable adversity that the most remarkable people flourish. Despite unbelievable trauma at the start of their lives, Yvonne Bernstein and Steven Frank are two of the most life-affirming people that I have had the privilege to meet. They look back on their experiences with sadness but also with gratitude that they were some of the lucky few to make it through. Their stories will stay with me forever.” – The Duchess of Cambridge Photographs © Kensington Palace
