Photos used in Portrait Pebbles are of real people who were imprisoned and killed because they were Jewish, intellectual, homosexual, Roma or disabled. The photos were taken shortly after they arrived at the concentration camps, as part of their internment.
The photos originate either from Jerusalem's Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial Museum, or the National Holocaust Museum in Washington D.C. or the International Tracing Service of the International Red Cross. Most of the photos used in Portrait Pebbles are anonymous.
Descendants of Holocaust victims and survivors, as well as other genocides, are encouraged to bring their own family photos.
