SF: Lest We Forget – A Project by Luigi Toscano

Courtesy of the Goethe-Institut in San Francisco

Join on Wednesday, April 17, 12:00 noon, for the opening of Lest We Forget, a Holocaust remembrance project designed by German-Italian artist Luigi Toscano. 78 large-scale photographs of Holocaust survivors honor individuals living in the USA, Israel, Germany, Ukraine, Russia and the Bay Area with dignified portraits. These images ensure that we do not forget the Holocaust and inspire us to fight hatred today.

Lest We Forget has been on view at the Mall in Washington D.C., the United Nations in New York City and Boston Common, as well as at prominent outdoor sites in Europe. Displaying the portraits in public spaces makes the exhibit accessible to everyone. Over 1 million people worldwide have seen it so far.

In conjunction with the photo exhibition, the Goethe-Institut San Francisco and our community partners will present numerous educational programs, film screenings at the San Francisco Public Library, a panel discussion, public tours and other events throughout San Francisco.
