3-way Accord on Holocaust Memorial

Download PDF for this date

A three-way agreement between the city, the Community College of Baltimore and the Baltimore Jewish Community Relations council’s Holocaust Memorial Fund of Baltimore has been signed, giving the go-ahead for bids to go out for construction of the city’s Holocaust Memorial. The agreement was necessary because the city and the college are donating maintenance services and land to the project. The project will cost about $175,000 and will be completed next fall. The memorial will consist of an open-air sanctuary protected by two cantilevered concrete blocks. Engraved on the sanctuary walls will be appropriate inscriptions.
