Numbered examines our relationship with what has become one of The Holocaust's most notorious "trademarks" - the numbered tattoo.
139 backers pledged $6,140 to help bring this project to life.

We have set the date!

Dear all, 

We are very happy to tell you that the date has been set: on August 1st we will gather 50 survivors who still bear the tattooed numbers on their arms for a historical group shoot. 


Your generosity and involvement have made this day possible, and you will all be with us on that day. Thank u so very much for your support.

We will keep posting updates here to let you know how the project is coming along. 


Also, we are getting a lot of feedback from people who knew survivors that already passed away. If you knew a survivor, and have an old photo of them, with the number showing, pls send it to us:

We will make it a part of the Numbered project. 

(For historical accuracy, pls mention the survivor's full name, his number, country of origin and anything else u want to say about them, that u think people should know...)


Thank you so very much,
