The mission of The Memory Project Productions is to promote social justice
through art and remembrance.
- • As descendants of Holocaust survivors we have a particular responsibility to fight intolerance and promote understanding.
• Sharing stories through creativity makes tangible connections to the past and emotional bonds between people in the present.
• Experiencing art provides opportunities to see and connect with the world more fully.
• The Memory Project is a platform for investigating the past, connecting it with the present and sharing what we learn across generations and cultures.

It’s important to understand the experiences of ancestors because then you can be more sympathetic to them.
It enlivened the curriculum and enabled our students to connect their family history with that of the overall curriculum, empowering them to see their connections to important historical events. Students were excited to participate in this unique activity combining artistic expression and history.
It is important to hear the stories as it brings the history to life and shows that it’s more than an event in a textbook.
The perfect blend of narrative, process, art, philosophy, humanity, life, loss, re-finding, love.
My 75 public school teachers at the Advanced University of Miami Holocaust Teacher Institute in February, 2011 stood on their feet in applause. This is a perfect film and program presentation for not only teacher training but also for a community showing. I can’t recommend this excellent program enough.

The Friday evening was filled with feeling and story and depth and connection. Thank you for your unusual teaching, your beautiful examples – and for making possible a very moving experience.
Here’s another program on the Holocaust. Good. Here’s a program with a different take on the Holocaust. Better. Here’s a program that draws you into the story from the traditional angle and from other, unique perspectives. Best…This film works because it appeals to all the senses – through the visual arts, music, and emotion. It combines great visuals, tight editing, well-constructed story arc, and it does it all in a half hour.
I will remember my grandfather’s story forever. Hearing his story from him was the most meaningful part, and how exciting it was for him.
I think that the connection of art to history is very important because it can help you visualize things more. Also, when you are actually doing something you are able to form even a deeper connection to the subject, or at least I am personally, because you are doing something with your hands as well as your mind.
I really liked how there was repetition, not in a bad way, but in a way that makes me feel bad/sad. This piece can really get to you and many people can relate to this…
