WINTON'S TRAINS (2011)

Photographs and documents about the children who were allowed to live and of history which, sadly is still present...

External exhibition of large-scale photographs and documents following up the successful project Winton Train 2009. The openings in London and Prague took place simultaneously on the occasion on N.G. Winton's 102nd birthday.

Owing to the outburst of the Iceland volcano and ensuing gales reaching London the exhibition ’Winton’s Trains’ sited outside Liverpool Street Station, London, has been severely damaged and had to be dismantled. We are currently looking for a new site to bring the London part of the exhibition to life as soon as possible.

Winton's Trains in Prague was a remarkable success and the exhibition was extended by august 14. In the end it lasted over two and a half months and was visited by thousands of viewers.

This exhibition presents the facts surrounding and the emotions associated with the outstanding journey of the Winton Train after many years. It is aimed at the general public and is designed to be displayed open air on 27 mobile panels.The documentary materials and photographs are accompanied by explanatory texts.

Maps and documents on the Fascist ideology leading to the persecution of the Jews, pogroms and the tragic impact of Crystal Night will remind young ones of the dramatic moments of recent history coming back to life today through the fanatic ideologies of nationalism. The pictures show children’s faces and their travel documents; they capture the life of Nicholas Winton before the train’s first departure in 1938 and they document the concentration camps of Auschwitz – Birkenau, portraying the horrific conditions under which the children there lived.

The exhibition will also display the testimony of contemporary Winton children living in the Czech Republic. It will offer pictures from visits to their homes, their recent portraits and it will explore the lives of their families. It also shows Sir Nicholas Winton – who for hundreds of children is their only, yet not merely symbolic, father…

Born in 1946, Yann Arthus-Bertrand has always been fond of nature. It was in the late 70s, in Kenya, while studying with his wife Anne the every day life of a pride of lions that, that he truly became a photographer. He understood that he had to tell the facts through images rather than words. He also discovered the beauty of the world seen from above when he became a hot air balloon pilot and began experimenting aerial photography.
