Art and Memory Project

The Art and Memory Project brings Holocaust history to life for Washington-area high school students, enabling them to learn about what happened directly from the survivors themselves and to create works of art based on the survivors’ experiences.

About the Project

Every year, Bringing the Lessons Home and Stephen Tyrone Johns Summer Youth Leadership Program Ambassadors meet with and interview the Museum’s survivor volunteers, translating their experiences in the Holocaust into drawings, paintings, and poems.

The finished artwork is exhibited at galleries, schools, religious institutions, and universities in the Washington area.
