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 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…
It enlivened the curriculum and enabled our students to connect their family history with that of the overall curriculum, empowering them to see their connections to important historical events. Students were excited to participate in this unique activity combining artistic expression and history.
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!

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.
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.
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.
I love this project, it is one of my favorite days of the year!
Future generations can still connect and carry the legacy of those who we’ve lost.
Jacobs, through images, photographs and a film, tells the story of her family members who lived in Poland before the war. In painting a series of portraits of her relative based on his one single photo, she is trying to restore a part of Kalman’s existence. With this, the artist is able to create an installation that illustrates the power of change that lies within art and memory and makes the tragedy of the Shoah something that is very personal and direct.
