Creating Connections with Technology?

How can you carry a story into the future?  Is it possible to create a personal connection to someone’s history when they aren’t there to tell it?  Can technology allow you to bring humanity to the forefront?

The Sydney Jewish Museum was founded by Holocaust survivors.  By sharing their stories, they put humanity at the forefront of history, creating a meaningful, lasting lifetime impact.

In this presentation, Shannon Biederman shares a new exhibition that looks at how to enable future generations to have a meaningful and memorable interactions with survivor testimony.
