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 antisemitism and bigotry 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.

I learned that pain and joy can be enriching when combined together. You cannot have one without the other.
This is a unique exhibit that not only deals with the subject of Holocaust art, but also the process by which Holocaust art is created.
Jacobs, through images, photographs and a film, tells the story of her family members who lived in Poland before the war. In painting a series of portraits of her relative based on his one single photo, she is trying to restore a part of Kalman’s existence. With this, the artist is able to create an installation that illustrates the power of change that lies within art and memory and makes the tragedy of the Shoah something that is very personal and direct.
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.
This video and story both made what happened with the Jews during Hitler’s rule seem so much more real. This video did a great job in capturing the story and the emotional connection the artist and her mother both had to the events.
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 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.
The film provided me with a firsthand example of how the Holocaust impacted families. I have never witnessed anything like it.
The perfect blend of narrative, process, art, philosophy, humanity, life, loss, re-finding, love.
I noticed how each painting looked like Kalman but none of the paintings were that similar.
