Oregon Holocaust Memorial Monday, January 29, 2007

The Oregon Holocaust Memorial is located in Portland's Washington Park. It was dedicated in 2004, ten years after the idea of a memorial was conceived by local survivors.

Soil and ash from the six killing-center camps are interred beneath the memorial. As well as a history of the Holocaust etched in black marble, it features short quotes of survivors' memories, and cast sculptures symbolizing items lost by Jews sent to the internment camps: a dropped suitcase, lost teddy bear, broken fiddle, and broken glasses strewn along the path to the memorial wall.
