The Memory Project

The Memory Project brings participants inside the creative process and into the memories of a Holocaust survivor. It began with artist Roz Jacobs and her mother Anna sharing their story of Anna’s mischievous younger brother, Kalman. It’s developed into an internationally-recognized project addressing universal themes of loss, love and resilience.

The core exhibit interweaves a Holocaust survivor’s story of the brother she lost with images of her daughter’s painted portraits of that boy. The nine portraits, adjacent to the videos, enable viewers to shift back and forth from witness to audience. Larger-scale portraits and wall panels continue the excavation of the visual, historical and emotional realities of loss, trauma and transformation.
