New Voices: Sycamore and Jewish Family Service, Spring, 2013

Posted on September 13, 2013

​Sycamore High School students worked one on one with Holocaust Survivors supported by the Holocaust survivor’s group of Jewish Family Service. 

Students and survivors photographed on a weekly basis over the course of ten weeks to interpret basic visual and thematic prompts of daily life: family, friends and home. Working in small groups, students and survivors discussed national identity, generations and the importance of history. Two students gave presentations at the Yom Hashoah event at the Jewish Community Center in April, 2013.

Work from the combined group was shown in a visual display at the Jewish Community Center in May, 2013. Images and excerpts from audio recordings were compiled into a video.
