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.

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 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.
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.
Finding Kalman is as poignant a movie as it is charming. Four generations — survivors, their children and their children’s children and even theirs — recall the past and create in the wake of that past. It is about loss and renewal, creativity and memory — all the elements of life. It is a work of both simplicity and power.
I liked being able to do a hands-on activity instead of a normal discussion or reading.
The Memory Project is a formidable work of art…[It] provides teens and adults with a vivid look at a survivor’s memory. It is a wonderful stepping-stone to incredible conversations and insight for us all. We highly recommend that everyone take the opportunity and the time to visit this Project when it comes into your community. It will be time well spent!

The film provided me with a firsthand example of how the Holocaust impacted families. I have never witnessed anything like it.
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 noticed how each painting looked like Kalman but none of the paintings were that similar.
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.
