Stephen Shore travelled through Ukraine with a guide and a translator to visit the homes of Holocaust survivors. Unlike Jews in many other countries, those in Ukraine were taken to killing sites near their homes and executed by Nazi death squads. Shore's photographs portray twenty-two Jewish men and women who fled Ukraine during the Second World War, going east on foot or by horse-drawn cart. Retuning home after the war, many found their homes destroyed, and themselves ineligible for the restitution afforded to concentration camp survivors.

Within Survivors in Ukraine, Shore has created a visual record of those who survived and the quotidian details of the lives they have built-capturing their homes, families and the surrounding landscapes.
