During the Second World War, many Jews found themselves facing the need to pack a suitcase that will contain all of their lives, within the space of a few minutes. Therefore, each object that had been chosen is symbolic, significant, and speaks of their life story. In this project I have chosen to take five victims, out of six million, and tell their stories, and all that they have been through, by showing what they had chosen to pack in their suitcase.
