Who is Commemorated?

Martyrs of the Holocaust

Description:

The monument consists of a rectangular plot in the center of a roadway that leads from the cemetery entrance to the main area of burials. Though not big, it cannot be missed by anyone coming to the cemetery. The ground of the plot is covered with pebbles and lined on the sides with low shrubs. At the end stands a stone monument made of four pieces of gray granite. A long slab lies flat on the ground as a base. Centered on this is an almost rectangular upright slab, that peaks at the top. Flanking the central slab, and seeming to support it, are two roughly triangular brackets or “book ends,” with scalloped edges. Each side slab is inscribed with the image of an oil lamp with a tall flame.

The front of the central slab has three elements. A Magen David decorated the top, fitting into the peak upper edge of the stone. Beneath this is a nine-line commemorative inscription in English, except for the Hebrew word “Zachor.” Beneath the text and filling just under half of the front of the slab, is an inscribed image of the entrance to Birkenau, with railroad tracks and the entrance gate.
