All the Jews were herded into a concentration camp by Bulgarian fascists.
Portraits of Survival is many things: an award-winning exhibition and series of videos; a much-touted educational program that has touched the hearts and minds of many, and a resource center that includes books, journals, videos and teaching materials.
But, at the heart of it, Portraits of Survival is about the Holocaust survivors and refugees themselves, their stories, their journeys, their heartaches, and their triumphs.
"Honoring our survivors symbolizes our victory over forgetfulness."
~Elie Wiesel, author, Holocaust survivor
