The Beginning -
The first sculpture is of a mother and two nestling children fearful as the signs of the Holocaust first appear. Their faces ask... "can it happen?" . . . "will God forsake us? The sculpture is framed by Anne Frank's message"... that in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart."
In Memory of Six Million Martyrs...
The Holocaust Memorial took over four years to be built, reaching its final stage at dedication ceremonies on Sunday February 4, 1990, with Elie Wiesel, Nobel laureate as guest speaker.
The visitor to the Memorial will at first be met by a visual sensation of contrasting elements: the brightness of the luminous Jerusalem stone, which represents the basic building material for the Memorial, and the stark, somber black granite, which lines the walls; another contrast is offered by the stillness of water in the reflecting pool with its majestic lily pads of uncommon dimension, and the azure sky reflecting its patterns in the water, almost competing with the somber reminder of the site's purpose - the reflecting shapes provided by the Memorial's sculpture.
