Obj. ID: 47082 Forest Hills Jewish Center, Queens, NY, USA - Holocaust Memorial Plaque
Who is Commemorated?
The six million Jews murdered in the Holocaust.
This memorial plaque is shaped from bronze, with projecting inscriptions and images of polished bronze.
At the top of the plaque is a dedicatory inscription, above a relief of six figures making their way through a burning bush (interpretation by the author of the description). Beneath the figures is a quote from Ezekiel 37 in Hebrew and English, and the bottom frame of the plaque depicts flames reaching up toward the quote.
Attached to the memorial is a sponsor plaque, also of bronze.
In remembrance of the six million
who perished in the Holocaust
כה אמר אדני ה' מארבע רוחות באי הרוח
ופחי בהרוגים האלה ויחיו - יחזקל לז
Thus saith the Lord God: Come from the four winds, O breath,
and breathe upon these slain, that they may live. -Ezekiel 37
