Our Journey Toward Canada's Holocaust Monument
The National Holocaust Monument will be Canada’s first national monument dedicated to the Holocaust. Located in Ottawa, the nation’s capital, the Monument will honour and commemorate those who were murdered under Nazi tyranny as well as acknowledge those survivors who were able to come to Canada.
This thought piece by Gail Dexter Lord and Dov Goldstein, reflects on Lord Cultural Resources' journey towards the creation of the National Holocaust Monument in Canada-- from the initial Request for Qualifications through to opening day. This includes the development of the right team, and concept, in order to strike a balance between the Holocaust's universal significance and the Canadian context.
