Monni Must's first portrait collection of Holocaust survivors. Published in 2009. Living Witnesses: Faces of the Holocaust Monni and Sabrina Must, mother and daughter, teamed up to create a book. Living Witnesses: Faces of the Holocaust. It is a book of portraits and experiences of Detroit-area Holocaust survivors. The 92 survivors featured form the foundation of this inspiring and heart wrenching book. It captures the survivors' personalities and honors who they were before the war, vividly depicting their experiences during the war, and honoring who they became afterward. Because there are fewer and fewer survivors, the book is a timeless tribute. All profits from this endeavor will be distributed to local Holocaust survivors in need. THe book serves as a reminder and testament to the strong spirit of survival- not only of the Jewish people but also of anyone who suffers and overcomes.

Monni Must began focusing on capturing the essence of people at a very young age. Her interest in photography inspired her to obtain a Bachelor s Degree from Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California. After graduating, Monni got married and had her first daughter, Miya. Monni then went on to give birth to three other daughters. She immersed herself into motherhood and for a while... put photography on hold. In 2008, Miya, Monni s first daughter, died, tragically and suddenly. Moni dove headfirst into her work as a means to deal with her grief. She began the Holocaust book project. After three years of intense work, travel, and healing, the books are complete. Monni funded the first book on her own and the profits from sales go to assist survivors in need. Monni also photographs infants in the neo natal department at Beaumont Hospital in order for parents to have photographs in remembrance of their babies. In her own words: My passion has expanded into making life more meaningful, fulfilling a void in my life after the death of my daughter. It has allowed me to channel my grief into something more positive.Review:

Dear Ms. Must, It is an elegant and, even more, a deeply moving effort. The faces tell the story. The clear and simple narrative text enhances but never intrudes. Victor Dear Monni and Sabrina, Let me first tell you how absolutely incredible both of you are. The book from beginning to end was spectacular! It is such a treasure to me. Each time I pick it up I have tears in my eyes, tears of joy knowing that all of these people survived, and tears of sadness knowing what atrocities occurred... I feel so grateful to both of you for giving voices to the ones who were silenced... Thank you so so much for this amazing project, words truly do not do it justice. Brenda Hi Monni, I just wanted to thank you again for making the experience beautiful not only for my mother but for myself!

You are awesome! Trudy Monni, I went and viewed the ;Triumph Over Tragedy exhibit today in Bloomfield Hills, and it took my breath away. I am an aspiring photographer, and have never seen anything so incredible as the work I saw today. I am only eighteen, but if the photos I saw today were the last ones I could ever see. I would be content. Thank you, so much, for sharing your talent with the rest of us. It means more than you will ever know. Ashleigh --Personal Testimonials
