Wanted: Holocaust artifacts to photograph

The artifacts (letters, documents, photos, books, personal possessions such as clothing and toys) will be photographed and filmed with the Holocaust survivor or survivor family member.

The Racing Against Time project reflects L'Dor V'Dor, from generation to generation, remembering and preserving artifacts from the past. Let's begin Racing Against Time so that these artifacts can be viewed by educators, students, and the community.
