Monument to the Victims of the Holocaust
The monument was inaugurated in 2007 as a result of the agreement signed in 2005 between the City Council and the Jewish Community of Madrid. It is located in the Juan Carlos I Park of Madrid, next to the Garden of the Three Cultures (symbol of the coexistence in Spain of the Hebrew, Christian and Muslim civilizations). The monument is the work of the Jewish sculptor of Sephardic origin Samuel Nahón, with the collaboration of the architect Alberto Stisin.
The central motif of the set is a vertical projection of the Star of David that sits on a platform covered with railway sleepers, as a symbolic allusion to the “death trains” in which the victims were taken to the Nazi death camps . Complete the set the schematic figure of a father with his son in the arms, and a group of sleepers nailed on the ground in an upright position.
