The dedication of the New Hampshire Holocaust Memorial is now history and we estimate it was attended by more than 200 people.

Many were brought together into completing this construction. So many unexpected blessings happened – when we needed them most.

Many details beg for explanation, but one stands out. The reflection from the shiny black cube in the center of the central sculpture demonstrates that we are all connected and involved across time and space. I see, in the reflection of the children who look at this cube, all the faces of all the children we should have known but never met.

All this memorial can do is make us pause for a moment. But it cannot answer the innocent children who stare back from eternity and ask, “Why did this happen?”
