Remembering the Holocaust

A new outdoor sculpture honors young victims of the Holocaust
Chris Edwards

A concrete-and-steel sculpture depicting a butterfly forms the centerpiece of a new garden at Shalom Park (4901 Providence Road) dedicated to the 1.5 million young people who perished at Hitler’s hands. Artist Paul Rousso glued more than 2,000 hand-painted ceramic butterflies to his work. The Levine Jewish Community Center hopes people of all faiths and ages will make their way to the garden, dwell on the brightly colored butterfly, and remember a dark time.
