The Prime Minister of NZ, Rt Hon John Key, launched the Shadows of Shoah Exhibition at a United Nations International Holocaust Remembrance Day event in January 2013.
Shadows of Shoah is directed by the board of the Shadows of Shoah Trust. It is a work in progress - an artistic and educational project, communicating the gravity and significance of the Holocaust in a unique way. Using photography and original music, selected episodes from survivors' experiences are presented in a brief, compelling format to reach a generation for whom the Holocaust holds little relevance or significance. View examples of our work to date here and here and here.
