Holocaust Remembrance

The Oregon Holocaust Memorial in Washington Park provides the community a sacred space for reflection and contemplation of lives lost. Bronze castings of items left behind in haste, such as this Teddy bear, dot the path leading to the memorial. Free docent-led tours of the memorial are available April 22 beginning at 1 pm. To schedule a group tour, call OHRC at 503-245-2733 or visit www.ohrconline.org.
