Architect Unknown, 1930 & 1972
Cemetery prayer hall, just near Holmwood House, incorporates Glasgow’s only Holocaust Memorial. Come along to listen to short talks by the sculptor, and learn the stories of those who fled the Holocaust and see the ‘Gathering of the Voices’ Exhibition. In the unlikely event of a funeral there may be a short interruption.
The memorial will be complemented on the day by the presence of:
1. Lyn Wolfson, the sculptor, (see http://www.lynwolfson.com) who will give short talks on how she went about designing and creating the memorial.
2. The Gathering of the Voices Exhibition which tells the story of those who fled the Holocaust and established a new life in Scotland (see: http://www.gatheringthevoices.com/exhibition).
3. A sculpture presented to the Glasgow Jewish Community by the late artist George Wyllie. This takes the form of a railway cattle truck filled with shoes.
4. A Memorial Book created by the Association of Jewish Refugees to commemorate relatives who died in the Holocaust.
Visitors are also welcome to walk around the cemetery grounds which have been extensively renovated and extended by the Trustees in recent years.
