Shadows of Shoah is directed by the board of the Shadows of Shoah Trust.
Shadows of Shoah 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 new generation for whom the Holocaust holds little relevance or significance, we have attempted to produce powerful and evocative art while carefully maintaining historical accuracy.

The systematic murder of millions of European Jews must not be reduced to a faceless statistic or historical anomaly.
