Transfer of Memory

Featuring the portraits of Holocaust survivors in Minnesota, “Transfer of Memory” shares stories of survival during exceedingly difficult circumstances. As a collection, these images focus on life and hope. From Europe to Minnesota, the survivors fashioned their dreams, their futures, and their families. Their lives are constant reminders about the value of freedom and the enduring human spirit.
