A Virtual Memorial Warsaw 2013 is the manifestation of SFC - Shoah Film Collection in Warsaw 2013 hosted by Warsaw Jewish Film Festival together with & Museum of the History of Polish Jews (25 - 31 Oct 2013).

SFC - Shoah Film Collection is a worldwide unique media art initiative by the Cologne based internationally renowned media artist and curator Wilfried Agricola de Cologne. Founded on 27 January 2010, on occasion of the 65th return of the Liberation of Auschwitz, the initiative is addressed to young generations of artists and filmmakers to deal with the topic of Shoah (Holocaust)and collective trauma caused by totalitarianism by using new technologies and contemporary approaches in order to find future oriented ways to keep vivid the memory of the collective trauma by sensitizing via art. Meanwhile the collection is consisting of 60 outstanding works of experimental and documentary artfilms and videos.

In order to present Shoah Film Collection to a wider audience, Agricola de Cologne created in 2012 the experimental event context - "A Virtual Memorial - Commemorative Interventions" placing SFC in the context of complementary interventions, such as lectures, screenings, exhibitions, artists presentations, talks and discussions and much more, in order to activate the audience, as well.
