The Autographers is an international initiative that aims to connect local communities with their unique histories, through photography, interviews and writing.  

Open calls:

80th anniversary of The Danish Rescue Operation 
A call for a documentary photo exhibition

Thousands of Danish Jews were smuggled in fishing boats and other vessels to neutral Sweden in 1943, in defiance of Nazi deportation orders. Although a small portion were caught by the Germans, 99% of Danish Jewry survived the Holocaust. This remarkable story of courage and resistance should be remembered and passed on to the youth.

A photography exhibition and accompanying catalogue will follow in 
2023.

The Danish Volunteers in the Kibbutz

A call for a photo exhibition

Ideology, adventure, and youthful spirit made the volunteer movement in kibbutzim around Israel a sweeping trend in the 70s and 80s. Among the hundreds of thousands of young people who came, the Danish volunteers stood out. Some stayed in Israel, and some went back to Denmark with their spouses whom they met at the Kibbutz.

Do you have stories from that period? 

Sign up now for a project that celebrates the value of volunteering through those memories in the kibbutz. A portrait exhibition accompanied by a short text will follow in 2023.

Registration is open for Danes who volunteered in a Kibbutz, and photographers who wish to take part in the exhibition.
