Through My Own Eyes


Michael Horn

Media Files: 

My project titled "Through My Own Eyes" is a photo montage explaining the importance of Jews traveling to Poland and experiencing the sites of the Holocaust. The video is aimed at Jewish travelers who are contemplating a trip to Poland, but worred about current anti-Semtism there. Through the use of historical evidence, magazine articles, photographs, quotes, and dramatic music, I presented the reality of the situation. I attempted to make a case for both sides of the issue, but I argued that the benefits of the trip outweigh the negatives of Polish anti-Semitism.
