Art and Artifacts is an educational art program for juniors at Salesian College Preparatory High School. Participating students picked a picture from the Holocaust, researched the image, and then created a digital artwork based on the artifact. The top ten submissions were chosen to display online and in person at the Yom HaShoah Commemorations. Click here to see the ten winners.
