A solemn and moving dedication of the Holocaust Memorial in San Juan, Puerto Rico, March 29, designed by husband/wife team Michael Berkowicz and Bonnie Srolovitz, New York-based artists, brought together representatives from many walks of life to commemorate and remember what must never be forgotten – the Holocaust.Upon their return to New York, the designers said the response they received to their Holocaust Memorial sculpture titled “In the Shadow of Their Absence” was both humbling and a reassurance that art with a purpose matters. “We found that the people of Puerto Rico embraced the vision we created for them to educate a new generation of an atrocity we must never forget,” Berkowicz said.
The sculpture titled 'In the Shadow of Their Absence", is made of curved panel of weathering steel - with cutout shapes of family and permanent 'shadows' of black granite. The plaza also includes the Path of the Righteous. Location - across from the Capitol building and within walking distance of cruise ship piers. More info here
