An inventive father-daughter team are using the magic of Instagram to share with the world a teenage Holocaust victim’s gripping testimony.
With the world’s community of aging Holocaust survivors rapidly shrinking and global understanding of the genocide that killed 6 million Jews declining, advocates of Holocaust remembrance are seeking new and creative ways to share witnesses’ stories with younger generations.
Much as Anne Frank’s diary gripped the older generations, an Instagram account based on a true 13-year-old Jewish victim’s journal, called “Eva.Stories,” is generating buzz among the young.
Mati Kochavi, an Israeli high-tech billionaire who hails from a family of Holocaust victims, survivors and educators, and his daughter, Maya, have created a series of 70 Instagram stories that chronicle the downward spiral of Eva Heyman’s life in the fateful spring of 1944 when the Nazis conquered Hungary.
