Casson Mann’s overall design concept for this new permanent exhibition brings evidence ‘into the light’. Galleries suffused with colour reflect how the Holocaust was carried out in ‘plain sight’. The sky blue walls and everyday sounds evoke daylight and familiarity. Affirming recent academic thinking, they dispute the myth that horrors were perpetrated under a ‘cloak of darkness’.
As the judges said, "A very difficult subject matter that was told poetically and through simple and effective design. The use of sky blue and its meaning was very effective."
