San Juan Holocaust Memorial Sculpture

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
