Holocaust Garden of Remembrance

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.”

                                                                      Isaiah 61:3

“This is an opportunity for the next generation to remember and keep vigilant.”
