Not that special
Aug 2019
The memorial is a series of family statues that aren't cleaned up maybe for a while. it's at the entrance of the city, so it's easy to see when you are entering or leaving it. nice but in my simple point of view doesn't require changing my visit path for it.

An unusual memorial
Sep 2019
I was told this was the ghetto area.
The statue is haunting in itself- the area now busy with tavernas.
Such a terrible experience too harsh to contemplate. A fitting memorial as no one should forget

interesting memorial

this is a few steps from the currently used synagogue at the bottom of the hill where the new fortress stands, at the edge of town. Very nicely done.

Could not find it
Jun 2019 • Couples
Despite having a great map and a big bottle of water, we never found the statues. Asked locals, some pointed us north, while the next fellow pointed us west...
We canvassed the entire area. Finally gave up and were very disappointed. What we can say is that the area it is supposedly in, is walkable - but dirty and pretty worn down.

Shame we need reminding, but we definitely do...

You could easily walk past this statue without knowing what it represents - perhaps it could have a little more oomph so we don't forget. There's also a synagogue nearby which is worth a visit.

Important Event but not a great statue
Jul 2018 • Friends
Obviously, it's crucial that this event is memorialized but I have issues with this sculpture itself. Why depict the family as naked? This symbolism I find very problematic. Why are all the politicians of the island depicted clothed and these people as naked? I think it takes away from their dignity as former proud citizens to be depicted nude. Also, the close placement of it next to a cafe is inappropriate. They deserve a better memorial, to be honest but its better than nothing. Again just my opinion.

Very interesting

We didn’t know about this memorial sculpture until it was mentioned to us by a local shop owner in the old city.
He directed us how to get there and we found it.
It was created in 2001 and is very interesting and a nice gesture of corfu.

Moving Memorial

in an odd spot but it stands out. A moving tribute to those lives lost in WW2. The plaque that goes along with it reminds us all of the horrors that happened. A place to meditate and evaluate.

Moving but tucked away in a quieter part of town
Sep 2018 • Couples
The statue itself is quite moving. It was dedicated in 2001 to the island's population of 2000 Jews who were rounded up in the dying days of the war in 1944 and sent to the concentration camps. Only 121 survived. The statue, whilst modern in nature is quite powerful in what it conveys. It is in a strange location, tucked away next to a wine bar in a quiet square. However, the area was frequented more by locals rather than tourists, so perhaps this was a deliberate positioning. It is meant for the local population, of which there are less than 100 left, as I understand.
