Every year, 30,000 teenagers join a school-trip about the Holocaust, known in Israel as The Journey To Poland.
8 days, 4 concentration camps, 2 mass graves, 10 memorials, 100 teenagers in 1 hotel.
Teenagers film every gas chamber and ceremony, as well as late-night hang-outs at the hotel and video selfies. They share these videos online, adding to an ever-expanding YouTube archive of over 30,000 clips.
#uploading_holocaust weaves many of these YouTube clips to reveal a moving and troubling image of the way collective memory is formed in the Internet Age.
