Jerusalem’s Safra Square is the temporary home for The Lonka Project, a traveling photography exhibit documenting Holocaust survivors around the world, according to The Times of Israel.
The exhibit, which includes 59 photographs of survivors, opened on the eve of Israel’s Holocaust Remembrance Day last week and will remain open for four months.
The project is headed by Rina Castelnuovo and her husband Jim Hollander, both photojournalists. The project is named for Elenora “Lonka” Nass, the mother of Castelnuovo, who is a New York Times’ photojournalist.
Last year, Hollander told the newspaper, “We said, ‘What can we do to help Holocaust survivors so that their stories don’t disappear into the dust?’”
