Transfer of Memory

More than 70 years removed from the end of World War II, the Holocaust Survivor community is becoming fewer and fewer. Transfer of Memory serves as David Sherman's contribution to respectfully and beautifully preserving Survivors' witness to the horrors of the Holocaust by portrait, by name and by story.

Transfer of Memory is a touring exhibition that is available to visit schools, religious institutions, community centers, galleries and museums throughout the United States. The project, sponsored by the Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas, includes powerful written text by Lili Chester.
