Holocaust Memorial Wall

An evolving permanent exhibit of local residents that have family ties to the Holocaust.

A Tribute To Local Holocaust Families

The Holocaust Memorial Wall honors 10 families with a connection to Lancaster County who have ties to the Holocaust. Each featured family has a panel showing pictures of relatives and their stories. We created this memorial to remember the roots, the legacy of the Emerald Foundation Community Campus and its connection to the Jewish community in Lancaster. In addition, a special panel denotes the history of the building and a tree of life to honor all of those who survived and perished in the Holocaust. The wall includes stories of hardship and deprivation, slave labor, murder, and most importantly survival. Judaic artifacts are displayed throughout the building.

Holocaust Memorial Day

Visit the Holocaust Memorial Wall on January 27, 2020 to honor those who have ties to the Holocaust.
