Granddaughter of Holocaust Survivors Makes Jewelry Featuring Nazi Tattoo Numbers

Dana Rogozinski named her jewelry company after her Holocaust survivor grandparents – and Dana hopes her necklaces and bracelets will “spark conversations,” as they feature the unique Holocaust numbers of loved ones who survived the Nazi camps:

Rogozinski, 28, thought about how after a long post-war silence, her grandmother had more recently begun sharing her Holocaust testimony. She always showed the tattoo on her arm, using it as a conversation starter as she spoke with individuals or groups. . .

“I wanted the jewelry to spark conversations to ensure that the Holocaust will be remembered and not denied. It’s a way of teaching to ensure it never happens again,” she said.

Rogozinski admitted that critics may find her jewelry morbid, but insisted they are missing the point.

When she looks at the number, she sees not only what took place during the war, but also what happened before and after it. It’s the memory of people’s lives before the Nazis and their atrocities, and the survivors’ resilience in building new lives after such great loss.
