Art and history connected in this project, which aimed to connect Holocaust remembrance and contemporary media trends. Holocaust remembrance was promoted through a three-pronged approach in Poland (the first year) and in Slovakia (the second year). At the center of the project was a travelling multi-screen exhibit and a documentary movie about a Polish Holocaust survivor's story and the attempt of a second generation representative to connect to his lost relatives through art.

The multi-screen exhibit was the starting point for the second cornerstone of the project: an educational program encouraging participants to learn about a Holocaust victim's personal story and connect to that person through a drawing. These drawings were exhibited in schools and museums and, as part three, shared via social media tools.
