“THE HOLOCAUST” by George Segal
“We will never forget the genocidal slaughter of six million Jews, including one and a half million children in the Nazi Holocaust of 1933-1945.
We will never forget the cruel apathy of a world which allowed that Holocaust and the deliberate murder of millions of other people to happen.
We will never forget the martyrs of that evil abyss in human history. Nor will we forget those Jews and the righteous of all faiths who resisted and fought that evil. In the memory of those martyrs and fighters, we pledge our lives to the creation of a world in which such evil and such apathy will not be tolerated.
It is with that memory and that resolve that we dedicate this memorial.”
Dedicated November 7, 1984, San Francisco
