During the summer of 2009, Holocaust survivors met with youth ambassadors from Bringing the Lessons Home: Holocaust Education for the Community, a program of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, to participate in the weeklong project, "Art & Memory." One of the goals of "Art & Memory" is to take history beyond the walls of the Museum and into the community. Through interviews conducted by youth, survivors share their experiences and then groups composed of survivors and ambassadors work together to commit these memories to canvas. The resulting artwork will be exhibited in schools, churches, and synagogues throughout the Washington Metropolitan area during the 2009 - 2010 school year.
(This project was first adapted by the Museum in 2006 from an Israeli project, Dor leDor (Generation to Generation).)
