B’nai B’rith to Erect Memorial in Israel for Jewish Martyrs of Nazism

B’nai B’rith announced plans today to erect a 35-foct memorial to Jewish martyrs of the Nazi holocaust on a Judean hilltop overlooking the entrance to Jerusalem. The bronze monument, designed by sculptor Nathan Rapoport in the form of two Torah scroll segments, will be the central point of a 500,000-tree section of the B’nai B’rith Martyrs Forest in Israel. The segments will be engraved to depict symbolically the history of European Jewry from pre-war days through the Nazi era.
