Yom ha Shoah, Israel and the Jewish world’s annual day of remembrance of the Holocaust, is observed this week. We thought it would be appropriate to highlight some of the many monuments and memorials that keep alive the memory of those who were murdered — and the living Jewish worlds that were destroyed.
Many Holocaust memorials are massive constructions or different types of sculptural monuments. Others, however, are more personal, listing the names — often thousands of them — of those who died, or using fragments of shattered gravestones from destroyed Jewish cemeteries to construct memorial walls. Here are some…..May the memories of those recalled here be a blessing; may their souls be bound up in the bond of life.
