About Numbers, Pictures and Words

For many years we have learned to deal with the memory of the Holocaust through the unimaginable number of 6.000.000 victims. We have been exposed to mainly black and white photography and have also developed a vocabulary to address these issues. The session will explore the significance these elements have created in our collective memory and will offer alternative ways to remember and commemorate.
