Portraits in Black & White: Survivors and What They Carry

Photographer Barbara Mack's powerful portraits of Holocaust Survivors capture the essence of these remarkable people, many of whom pose with an object from their past. Cherished objects and family heirlooms -- a faded photo, a kiddush cup, a violin -- add powerful and evocative layers to these stunning images. The black and white portraits are accompanied by fascinating life stories.
