We had never visited this memorial, which has been in the park since 2004. We found it very thoughtfully created and a moving tribute. It is laid out to represent a town square like those where Jews were rounded up before being sent to concentration and labor camps. Strewn about are bronze replicas of the sorts of objects lost in the chaos and panic of the brutal deportations--a doll on a bench, eyeglasses, baby shoes, an open suitcase. Engraved on the polished wall at the end of the walkway are a history, quotes, and names of the murdered relatives of Portlanders. Do visit this important memorial.
