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 thought the entire process was really cool because when I was interviewing my mom, she got really emotional about some things and laughed about others. I felt like there was a new connection between my mom and I, and my mom and her family.
I like how art can be used to express the emotions and mindset of past events that we can only read about in textbooks and not truly experience ourselves…I really liked learning about how observation and focusing on light and shadows can evoke feeling from a plain piece of paper; it’s truly magic.
Future generations can still connect and carry the legacy of those who we’ve lost.
This was the best experience I’ve had in eight years teaching…Students learned about the world from each other.
There are no words to express how beautiful, sad and real this film and story is. The combination of words and images to reflect such powerful feelings and deep emotions is extraordinary. You have found a way to help people be part of the process, understand a story and yes, share in the universal nature of all of this — loss but also healing and joy. This is a triumph of the human spirit and life. I would love to share with my family.
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.
I really, truly enjoyed this project. I also loved hearing about my classmate’s experiences. I never really knew how much I don’t know my classmates. It has taught me not to assume I know everything about someone.
I love this project, it is one of my favorite days of the year!
What I learned about my friend’s experience, which relates to the Holocaust, is that no matter what happens, keep trying to go on.
I will remember drawing my great grandmother and laughing about my representation, but feel really good about how much time I took dedicated to doing this project about her. The presentation was the most meaningful part because I was sharing part of my own life through my ancestor’s.
