My Project

The Tower of Faces at the USHMM in Washington, DC pays tribute to Jewish life before the Holocaust and spans all of the floors of the exhibition, always reminding visitors of the life and culture that was annihilated. This companion book to the exhibit tells the story of how those photos came to be and provide important context for studying the Holocaust.

Translating the statistics of those murdered in the Holocaust into individual people who lived vibrant lives will help students understand the devastation of the actions of the Nazis.
