Multiply by Six Million - Portraits and Stories of Holocaust Survivors
Multiply by Six Million - Portraits and Stories of Holocaust Survivors, formerly entitled "Legacy: Portraits of Holocaust Survivors" was a project began by Evvy Eisen in 1992, which sought to photograph Holocaust survivors and accompany their portraits with a biography of their life during the Holocaust. The portraits are taken in black and white silver gelatin prints. While most of the portraits are 11"x14", some of the later portraits are 8"x11". The biographies are generally several pages long, and tell the stories of each individual’s story through the Holocaust. The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum accepted Eisen’s first donation in 1995, and accepted donations annually until 2006.
