Zell Holocaust Memorial
Spertus Institute of Jewish Studies
Chicago, Illinois

A small but powerful (500 square foot) memorial that focuses on the Holocaust in a unique manner. This two room environment uses artistic metaphors and a historic timeline to focus on the devastating loss of people, identity, tradition, future, humanity and freedom. It also features a symbolic tombstone for the people and communities destroyed, surrounded by computer screens that fade gently from the name of one victim to the next.
