Baltimore Holocaust Memorial
CreatorRichter Cornbrooks Gribble
Detail of the boxcar monoliths; The Holocaust Memorial in downtown Baltimore was originally built in 1980 and was redesigned in 1997. Today, the centerpiece of the stark gray memorial are two concrete monoliths that represent the boxcars used to transport Jews to the Nazi death camps during World War II. Railroad tracks surround the structure. The redesign, which cost $400,000, required the removal of a grassy hill to give passersby along the Inner Harbor a view of the memorial.
