Holocaust Memorial

Shoah memorial

The LJS Shoah memorial, made by Anish Kapoor, is inside the main entrance to the building.

The wall between the two entrance doors holds the memorial to the six million Jews who perished in the Sho'ah (Holocaust).

The stone, a three-ton Kilkenny limestone, is the work of the sculptor Anish Kapoor and was dedicated 10 November 1996, the 58th anniversary of Kristallnacht (Night of the Broken Glass). The sculpture is located on an axis with the Ark and ner tamid; the polished black of the void at the stone's centre reflects one's own inverted image as well as the light from the slot in the Sanctuary wall. The inscription reads, 'We have vowed to remember'.
