Silent Voices Speak is a non-profit organization dedicated to using art as a powerful vehicle for education and community building, and is devoted to arousing compassion, raising consciousness, and educating as many people as possible about the defining event of the twentieth century—the Holocaust—and its relation to social injustice in the present.

It's central exhibition, Silent Voices Speak—Remembering the Holocaust, consists of a collection of powerful mixed-media works by artist Barbara Shilo based on archival photographs of the Holocaust. Shilo's unique approach uses actual photographs, enhancing them through color, texture, relief, collage, and repetition of images. Accompanying the paintings in this exhibition are carefully researched narrative panels.

We believe:
Art can make history come alive.
Art can arouse compassion.
Art can change minds.
