"Tower of Faces" Magnet
In a three-story tower at the Museum, with natural light filtering and diminishing through each level, photographs of people from just one town cover the walls. Eisiskes, in present-day Lithuania, had about 3,500 Jewish residents in 1941. Most were killed in massacres during the Holocaust. Today, no Jews live in Eisiskes.
By humanizing these victims with images of their vibrant prewar lives, we honor them and memorialize all those who were killed without so much as a name or an image to remember them by.
With this 2" x 3" wooden magnet, you will have a memento of one of the Museum’s most moving displays.

The photographs on the magnet are displayed in the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum courtesy of the Shtetl Foundation.
