Long story...but I just finished up a six month project working with the Dallas Holocaust Museum doing a series of shoots of their living survivors and families. Can't begin to describe what a rewarding experience this has been. I am a public school teacher who shoots a lot on the side and got involved with the museum after a few field trips down there with my classes. Just finished up an incredible exhibit where many of the shots were on display before they will be exhibited in the museum itself. Here's one of my favorite shots from the project.
This shot is of a 94 year old man who spent time in Auschwitz and survived to go on and live a full life. He's holding here, his 7 1/2 week old great grandson and yes...the tattoo on his arm was from the camps.

And if you care to see a clip I put together on many of the shots, you can view them here.

That's great, i've had the privilege of meeting alot of holocaust survivors when I was in highschool. It is extremely rewarding to be doing something good for them..., even just talking to them and acknowledging them. The photos are great, you did an awesome job.

Great work. I'll have to check out the slideshow later. The lead shot is particularly powerful - a new life juxtaposed with an old one that nearly ended 65+ years ago.

Not only is this an exceptionally moving set of pictures they are also excellent pictures. The juxtaposition of the new life next to the Auschwitz tattoo is a wonderful metaphor for hope.

Very moving, Tony. Your words at the end of the slide show are very true. Victors, not victims. Thank you for sharing this, lest we ever forget.
