The garden, the first monument outside Jerusalem to Christians who saved the lives of Jews in Nazi-occupied Europe, contains trees originally planted in 1981 by Holocaust survivors residing in Delaware. Three decades of exposure to the elements took their toll, but the garden has been restored by its original landscape architect, Robert Grenfell, and the Halina Wind Preston Holocaust Education Committee.
Eva Fogelman, co-founder of the Jewish Foundation for Christian Rescuers and author of Conscience and Courage: Rescuers of Jews During the Holocaust, will be the featured speaker.
New trees will be dedicated by the Rojer/Harad and Kan/ Alexander families in memory of Righteous Gentiles who saved family members during the Holocaust.
This historic event is free and open to the public. A reception will follow the ceremony.
