USHMM - Behind Every Name

First-person Holocaust testimonies

We helped the Washington DC-based United States Holocaust Memorial Museum establish an ownable approach to motion-based storytelling by creating a series of illustrated animations called Behind Every Name. Supporting the museum's mission to 'never forget', each story brings to life one of the museum’s collection of remarkable first-person testimonies of Holocaust survivors and victims. As well as establishing an illustrative style sympathetic to the emotional nature of each story, we worked closely with the USHMM team on script development, storyboards and animation.
