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 noticed how each painting looked like Kalman but none of the paintings were that similar.
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!

Future generations can still connect and carry the legacy of those who we’ve lost.
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.
The Friday evening was filled with feeling and story and depth and connection. Thank you for your unusual teaching, your beautiful examples – and for making possible a very moving experience.
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.
I learned that pain and joy can be enriching when combined together. You cannot have one without the other.
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.
This was the best experience I’ve had in eight years teaching…Students learned about the world from each other.
I love this project, it is one of my favorite days of the year!
