Humans of the Holocaust
Join us for this special program that commemorates the Holocaust through photography. “Changing The Way We Talk About The Holocaust” uses visual storytelling as a powerful way to spark curiosity and empathy. By telling the story of the Holocaust through the deeply affecting medium of photography, participants are able to relate to and internalize the individual, human stories of the Holocaust. This empathy can generate an eye-opening discussion about the power of digital storytelling and the powerful truths it can convey as we remember and humanize the past—for a better future.
