‘Survivor: A Portrait of the Survivors of the Holocaust’ was published on Holocaust Memorial Day 2017.
“I have seen, as one can well imagine, many books on survivors. This book however was different. It was moving in a unique fashion and occupies a special place in my home.” Deborah Lipstadt
Martin Parr said, “something really to behold, a substantial project of some real depth and authority. By flicking through the pages you can sense the amount of research, patience and hard work that has been invested. The portraits, as always with Borden are simple, effective and very telling.”
Charlotte Cotton called it an “Astounding and an epic book” and Alain de Botton affirmed it, “A masterpiece and deeply moving.”
Images from this series were purchased by the National Portrait Gallery in London and the Australian War Memorial in Canberra acquired 6 prints for an exhibition about the aftermath of conflict. ‘After the war’ opened on 5 October 2018. In January 2018 some of the London portraits were exhibited at the London Jewish Museum and at Photo London, it was judged one of the 10 best photography books of the previous year by the Kraszna-Krausz Foundation.
