    The project is a collaboration between the Jewish News, the Royal Photographic Society, and Holocaust Memorial Day Trust and was revealed to the public following Prince Charles’s return from Jerusalem.
    Middleton’s father-in-law visited Israel’s capital for the largest diplomatic event ever held in the country organized by the World Holocaust Forum. The event was attended by dozens of other world leaders and coincided with the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, where at least a million Jews were killed.
