Oregon Holocaust Memorial
On way south thru Washington Park, Mike Bruening and I visited the Holocaust Memorial.
It is dedicated to Oregon Holocaust Survivors. The walk from the bench to the craved wall is emotional.
The scattered artifacts on the bench and the walk made me feel like I was a Jew that was snapped up by
the Nazi on a moments notice. The saying on the wall reinforced the value of the Jew’s Life – depressing.
I hope man wont do this to follows man again!
