Museum seeks to identify Holocaust survivors from old photos

1100 pictures of unknown children taken after WWII

BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. - It's called the 'Remember Me?' project. The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum is leading a nationwide search to identify 1,100 pictures of Holocaust surviving children, photographed after WWII. The pictures are grim reminders of the atrocities of the genocide.

Norman Frajman is an 82-year-old survivor who lives in Boynton Beach. He still carries the uniform he received from a concentration camp when he was 14. He endured the horrors of four concentration camps from 1939 to 1945, before he was liberated.

"It was maiming, it was shooting, it was murdering," says Frajman.

We sat beside Frajman as he browsed the photos online, on the off chance he might  recognize someone.

"I do not recognize anyone," says Frajman. "You should never stop looking for family, ever."

Frajman hopes someone else can. He's dedicated his life to educating youth about the Holocaust. His sister and mother were executed at a concentration camps.

 "I bear witness in order to prevent future atrocities such as that," says Frajman. 

He plans on looking through all 1,100 pictures with the hope of finding a long lost friend.
