In Jewish tradition, the laying of a stone at a grave marks the loved ones who have come to remember the deceased.This simple act binds generations together. The legacy of the Holocaust - or Shoah - is not just the elimination of nearly 6 million Jews; but the grievous loss of generations that never came to be—millions of stones yet to be placed. 

The memorial is sunken into the ground, with ramps leading the visitor to a 6 million stones installation at the centre of the memorial.

Visitors will be invited to make a pledge to do more to stop future atrocities and take one stone as a mark of this pledge.

 Once the stones are removed an amphitheatre will be revealed providing a new space for interaction and remembering the holocaust.
