Thank you for joining 3GNY and Selfhelp at the Museum of Jewish Heritage for this unique project on Monday, June 9, 2014

Holocaust survivors and liberators were invited to participate in a project that honors their legacies.

Brian Marcus, professional photographer and grandson of Holocaust survivor Fred Marcus, and June Hersh, bestselling author of Recipes Remembered, are gathering images and quotes, with the goal of creating a traveling gallery exhibit and book.

Participants had a private photo session with Brian where they were photographed individually as well as with family members.  June then interviewed participants about their experiences during the war to elicit a meaningful quote to accompany the photographs.  As a thank you, each participant received a professional 8X10 portrait.
