These concrete railroad
ties remind us of the tracks
that once carried the trains
that brought so many Jews
 to the concentration camp.

 

The inscription in front
of the obelisk reads,
"Never again" in
Polish, Yiddish,
Russian, English,
French and German.

 

These 17,000 granite
shards give the observer
a sense of a
Jewish cemetery.

 

A menorah is carved
into the top of this
forty-foot obelisk.
