We are very honoured to have the tiniest of parts in the new exhibition Speaking Memories – The Last Witnesses of the Holocaust – at the Swedish History Museum. The exhibition is, in the words of the museum, “dedicated to those who were there. Those who have personal memories and experience from the Holocaust. Those who survived”.

Speaking Memories is portraits, testimonies, videos, an interactive installation as well as an audio guide in which you can listen to testimonies from some of the survivors. The exhibition is on until September 2019.

Listen here.
The majority of the testimonies are in Swedish.

  • What role do museums have in collecting social photos?

The mix of participants; museum professionals, researchers and us (tech providers), from Sweden, Finland, England and Australia was very enjoyable. We split into groups and presented new and exciting ideas, keeping the GDPR regulations and Instagram’s restrictive API in the back of our minds…
