The Holocaust Memorial & Garden was established in Cobb County as both a memorial to commemorate those who perished in the Holocaust and as a backdrop for the education of current and future generations. The Holocaust was not inevitable. Rather, it was fueled by prejudice, stereotyping, hatred and racism. The words of the perpetrators and the silence of the bystanders allowed the Holocaust to occur. It is the words of perpetrators and the silence of bystanders that allows any genocide to occur. Ordinary people – making choices.
It is crucial to remember and learn from the past, to examine the present and to look to the future so that this tragic time in the history of mankind will not be repeated against anyone.
