Portraits of Remembrance Project

The Portraits of Remembrance Project preserves for future generations the important stories of GenShoah SWFL members’ parents and grandparents. These stories appear on the HMCEC website, in its monthly newsletter, and hopefully one day bound into a book available for sale benefitting Museum Education Programs. If you are interested in submitting a story, please e-mail Stories should be written for a middle school audience, contain 500-700 words, appropriate geographical and accurate historical references, a personal highlight and photograph. The stories may be in book format and/or virtual.
