Hg2 : The Hedonist

Holocaust Memorial

This powerful memorial is dedicated to the 6 million Jewish victims of the Holocaust.

It was commissioned in 1985 and executed by Kenneth Treister, sculptor, who has described it as:

‘[A] large environmental sculpture. a series of outdoor spaces in which the visitor is led through a procession of visual, historical and emotional experiences with the hope that the totality of the visit will express, in some small way, the reality of the Holocaust. The dominant image is the large, 42-foot-high bronze hand, The Sculpture of Love and Anguish, which includes an Auschwitz number on the forearm and 130 human figures cast in bronze in various forms of anguish’.
