Fewer than 100,000 Holocaust survivors are still alive, and that number is quickly dropping. As that number dwindles, artists are working to keep stories alive from one of the worst atrocities in human history.
Artist Bruce Gendelman explains why art is a critical part of educating people about the Holocaust in the post-witness era.
Gendelman was inspired to create his "Sifting Through Ashes" exhibition after a trip to Poland. His exhibition is currently on display at the Holocaust Memorial Center in Detroit.
