{portland} washington’s holocaust

August 31, 2015

During our Washington Park adventure, we visited Hoyt Arboretum and the Sacajawea statue then rode the free shuttle over to see the Oregon Holocaust Memorial. This memorial is not  unlike over Holocaust memorials. It lists names on black granite, which gives you a reflection of yourself as you walk past. All this is the same, but there was a detail about this memorial that particularly tugged at heartstrings. There were actual children’s items from that era that had been bronzed scattered around the memorial. It’s difficult to imagine that the teddy bear and shoe laying on the ground actually belonged to a child that died in one of the concentration camps during this time period. What a memorial.
