The Holocaust is not only about how the many died,
or how the few survived ... it is also about how the rest of us choose to live.

our assertion

The Holocaust was a game changer… no less so than the Exodus, than the Giving of the Torah or the destruction of the Temples.

Never before had there been such a serious, existential threat to theodicy, universal accountability, divine providence — on the one hand — and humanity on the other.

Such a manifestation cannot help but have a profound affect on our entire weltanschauung. Life is no longer … ‘business as usual’.

our mission

To acknowledge the nightmare that was, and honor the memory of those who suffered, in order that we emerge altered by the experience — forever changed — inspired by the role we play, by the responsibilities we accept, and the value inherent in our lives, our faith, and our deeds.

our challenge

Today, Holocaust awareness and education is at a crossroads. Ever fewer survivors remain to speak of their experiences, and those passionate about remembering and coming to terms with the impact of the Holocaust must find an uplifting, empowering, and life-affirming approach to it. Black is a Color offers that kind of approach. To that end Black is a Color has assembled an ambitious collection of projects aimed at providing greater exposure as well as making a deeper impact.

If you believe, as we do, that we are at a pivotal point in the history of our people, please consider partnering with us by supporting our efforts with your donations.

This is, no less than a transformation: from one man and an easel ... to a movement with a mission.
