FAQ

2. How do I participate?

Participants self-identify as Holocaust Survivors. Portraits and stories represent concentration camp survivors and hidden children experiences.

If you are interested in being featured in Transfer of Memory, please contact info@toleranceminnesota.org.


3. What happens at the portrait session?

The portrait session runs one and one-half to two (1 1/2 - 2) hours in length. Family members are welcome to be present.

David Sherman conducts and records a brief interview. Survivors are asked to share their story, which is edited by Lili Chester to create the exhibition text.

Once the interview is complete, a professional makeup artist prepares each Survivor to ensure they look their best.

Survivors are photographed in digital (color) and analog (black & white film) formats. David and the project curators are the final decision makers in regard to image selection.
