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.

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 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.
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.
Future generations can still connect and carry the legacy of those who we’ve lost.
Roz mother’s voice humanizes an aspect of the Holocaust that is infrequently visited: the simple humility of the Jewish people, the kindness and tenderness of Jewish family life, the redemption from the savage brutality that the Holocaust represents. I left with the feeling that this kind of brutalization must never happen again, and that I must do better to raise my voice against it right now, as it is happening someplace, on some level, in this world. I was inspired.

I love this project, it is one of my favorite days of the year!
I noticed how each painting looked like Kalman but none of the paintings were that similar.
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…
I learned that pain and joy can be enriching when combined together. You cannot have one without the other.
This was the best experience I’ve had in eight years teaching…Students learned about the world from each other.
