ZAKHEIM MEMORIAL TO SIX MILLION


 

The Warsaw Ghetto Memorial / Memorial to Six Million, by artist Bernard Zakheim portrays three dimensional figures rendered in burnt and tortured wood to depict differences among Holocaust victims.

Six heroic figures are set among cement slabs bearing the names of the most infamous of the Nazi death camps.  Rising from these stories is the flame that symbolizes the eternal spirit of the Six Million martyrs and the rebirth of Israel from the ashes of the Holocaust.

This monument is extremely powerful and it is not unusual to pass by individuals praying for loved ones or placing stones or flowers on the camps in memory of those who perished.
