Six Million

For Jewish people the tragedy of the Holocaust is overwhelming. The exact numbers of victims are difficult to know; however we do know that in the region of six million Jewish people were murdered, including over 1,500,000 children. It is sometimes difficult to imagine that a whole civilisation was virtually wiped out by the Nazis. Many of the people who were murdered have neither graves nor memorials. In many cases there are not even any surviving members of their families to remember them. It is important to create places where these events, and particularly the victims, can be remembered with respect.
