Six million Jewish martyrs

Description

The monument occupies a large square area covered by a 2-course stone platform, that is divided by a vertical composition of two large, inscribed granite slabs flanking a narrow slab that is cut at the top in the profile of a Magen David, with the whole star design inscribed onto the front of the stone. Inscriptions are only on one side of the upright slabs. Twelve flat grave slabs are set within the platform, six on each side. These are the graves of survivors.
