    Reportage Online

    Israelis honored their national Holocaust Remembrance Day on Monday in many ways, from public ceremonies to lowered flags to a nationwide moment of reflection, in which sirens wailed and drivers stepped from their cars and bowed their heads. For the country’s remaining 200,000 Holocaust survivors, the events of the 70 years ago are probably never far from mind, especially for Auschwitz prisoners like Leo Luster, above, who was tattooed by his captors with the ID #B11647. Mr. Luster was one of dozens of men and women photographed by Getty Images photographer Uriel Sinai for his project, “Numbered,” about the tattoos and their legacy. Mr. Sinai also filmed a documentary about the subject, which highlighted the phenomenon of the survivors’ children and grandchildren getting their own tattoos as personal tribute.
