HOLOCAUST
MEMORIALS
OF EUROPE

INTRODUCTION EXHIBITION



This exhibition is dedicated to all the shtetls, towns and cities of Europe where once there existed vibrant Jewish communities, and to all the blessed Jewish families whose members perished in the Holocaust.

Each of the memorials on display here was erected in Europe since the end of World War II. They are especially unique when compared to those that stand in other parts of the world such as the United States. The memorials of Europe were often built in the areas where the actual devastation, the mass murders, took place--in the ghettoes, at the sites where synagogues once stood, and in the killing fields and forests.

"Holocaust Memorials of Europe" was made possible by the generosity of all those who graciously contributed their memorial photos to the museum for their display.
