The Lonka Project. Man numbered is part of a larger project that tells personal stories of Holocaust survivors. It was conceived by photographers Rina Castelnuovo and Jim Hollander, her husband, in memory of Rina's mother Eleanor (Lonka) Nass. They turned to professional photographers to create portraits of Holocaust survivors and record their memories. As a result, hundreds of pictures and stories appeared.

We are the last generation that can hear the stories of Holocaust survivors first-hand. And all these stories are not similar to one another, and this became one of the starting points when working on the exposition architecture.
