I’m an artist trying to collect photos of hands from people all over the world for my holocaust memorial project. I’m hoping to collect 11 million hand photos to represent the estimated 11 million Jews, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Gentile Poles, Gypsies, Homosexuals and disabled people killed during World War II.

Using my project to help remember the dead I also hope to use it as an educational platform to help younger generations around the world learn to value all human life regardless of who we are, what we look like, where we come from or what we believe in. I’m asking people of all ages from all over the world to send me photos of their hands so I can reach my goal of 11 million hands for 11 million lives.

I need community help from you to make my project succeed so please join in and upload your picture below. Please, position your hands cupped and open as if in offering peace to the 11 million lives they represent as well as hope and equality to future generations.

Thank you and if possible I'm trying to get people to pose their hands palm side up so it gives the message of peace to the dead.
