Oregon Holocaust Memorial

Sw Washington Way, Portland, Oregon 97205 USA

“Never forgotten, always missed”

The Oregon Holocaust Memorial, dedicated August 29, 2004, serves as a permanent  reminder of the Holocaust, where millions  were systematically murdered  by the Nazi government of Germany from 1933 to 1945. They were murdered  because of their political or religious beliefs, physical and mental disabilities, sexual orientation, or assistance to the persecuted. By teaching the lessons of the Holocaust and visiting the Memorial, we pay homage to those who lost their lives during that period. Further, there is hope that we can encourage future generations to be accepting of all good people, regardless of personal choices. In 1994, the Oregon Holocaust Memorial Coalition had its beginnings when  a local group of Holocaust survivors formed the Oregon Holocaust Survivors,  Refugees and Families Committee. They organized, with the purpose of memorializing  their loved ones and other millions murdered in the Holocaust, by creating  a memorial in the city of Portland, Oregon. The site in Washington Park was generously donated by the City of Portland with the unanimous support of  the City Council, adding Portland to the list of major cities around the  world with such a monument.
