Growing Beauty for Ashes
“To console those who mourn in Zion,
To give them beauty for ashes,
The oil of joy for mourning.
The Garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
That they may be called trees of righteousness.
The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.”
“This is an opportunity for the next generation to remember and keep vigilant.”
Houston Chronicle – “KING’S HARBOR PROJECT TO KEEP MEMORIES ALIVE”
illustrate for children the experiences of children during the Holocaust at the Jasenovac Camp and other
European locations using painting, sculpture, music, and physical structures in a way that honors those
who survived, serves as memorial to the victims, educates the public, and compels visitors to say,
“Never again!” in their own communities.
This one-of- a-kind children’s memorial garden will feature eight pocket exhibits, each focusing on a
specific aspect of the Holocaust. Art will be combined with other creative educational tools designed to
help children learn about what happened in a safe, family-friendly setting that encourages children and
parents to stand up for what is right. This beautiful series of art exhibits and plantings will be enhanced
with personal stories and timelines to stimulate contemplation and discussion. More specific curricular
materials for various grade levels will be made available on the website for classroom or personal
