The Memory Project: Finding Kalman and Never Again - Again
An Art Installation by Roz Jacobs and Laurie Weisman, co-founders of The Memory Project Productions, Inc.
Special Exhibition | March 23 - June 11, 2023
The Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center is proud to present The Memory Project: Finding Kalman and Never Again – Again. The multimedia exhibit excavates loss, trauma, and transformation through art and story.
A single photograph was the springboard for an an exhibit that explores memory, process, and presence. Kalman, the boy in the photo died in the Holocaust, but through his sister’s memories and multiple portraits done by a niece who never met him, we feel his vibrant presence.
The world pledged “Never Again” in the wake of the Holocaust. Yet we’ve seen genocides and atrocities happening again – and again. This exhibition includes paintings and stories of six survivors of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda. Along with the paintings, a video draws viewers close to the canvases as we hear fragments of the survivors’ stories.
