Holographic Theater Project

Halina Zimm answers a question during one of the filming sessions.

About two months ago, Halina Zimm, a Holocaust Survivor, started a new project for the Virginia Holocaust Museum. Halina filmed for a week with a barrage of cameras in front of her to create her very own hologram.

The VHM partner, the USC Shoah Foundation (Dimensions in Testimony), used their equipment and team to film Halina’s story. As part of the Museum’s Capital Campaign, VHM is building a Holographic Theater.

“Halina will be our guide in the Holographic Theater and share her story and answer the questions of visitors for years to come.”

She said, “At first, I was reluctant to do this for five days, but after talking with my family and Sam (Asher), I decided to do it. I am happy I did. The three women from the Shoah Foundation were so patient with me and helped me so much over the five days.”

Stay tuned for more updates from the Museum over the next year.
