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.

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.
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.

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 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.
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’s important to understand the experiences of ancestors because then you can be more sympathetic to them.
I love this project, it is one of my favorite days of the year!
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.

The film provided me with a firsthand example of how the Holocaust impacted families. I have never witnessed anything like it.
This was the best experience I’ve had in eight years teaching…Students learned about the world from each other.
