SHARE THE STORIES
OF HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS


The systematic murder of millions of European Jews must not be reduced to a faceless statistic or historical anomaly. Shadows of Shoah stands against rising antisemitism with its acclaimed artistic and educational exhibition.

WHAT IS SHADOWS OF SHOAH? 

The Shoah (Hebrew: השואה, HaShoah, “the catastrophe”) or Holocaust was the Nazi perpetrated genocide of 6 million Jews from 1941 - 1945. 

Shadows of Shoah is a unique multidisciplinary artistic and educational work communicating the reality of the Holocaust to a new generation.  Presenting excerpts from the stories of Holocaust survivors from around the world, the Shadows of Shoah exhibition responds to antisemitism and Holocaust distortion and denial.

Since its launch in 2013 by Prime Minister John Key, this acclaimed exhibition has been staged in museums, galleries, campuses and schools throughout New Zealand.

THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS 
UNIQUE WORK OF REMEMBRANCE

The Shoah (or Holocaust) is one of the most documented events in all of human history.  And yet, for all the evidence that is gathered, all the documentation that is amassed, there is something that is often neglected.  

When one speaks of a thousand, a million, six million, the personal experience of the individual son or daughter, brother or sister, mother or father, is too readily subsumed in the statistic. 

Shadows of Shoah uses black white portraiture, original music and text to convey the pathos of Holocaust survivors' experiences. 


Minimalism - visually, textually and musically - it leaves room for the viewer to grapple with the incomprehensible.

Shadows of Shoah is an ongoing work. Since 2008 forty-five Holocaust survivor stories have been captured - survivors resident in Israel, Australia, New Zealand and USA.
