Garden to honor 1.5M children killed in Holocaust

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - A garden that honors the 1.5 million children who were killed in the Holocaust is being planned at the Charleston Jewish Community Center.

The Post and Courier reports that the garden will be the only Holocaust memorial in the Charleston area dedicated specifically to the children.

The center's existing atrium garden was funded 50 years ago to memorialize the 6 million people killed in the Holocaust. But that garden but has been neglected and needs restored.

Fannie Appel-Rones notes a memorial in Marion Square now honors the 6 million. So she wanted a memorial to focus on the children.

She is unsure of the project's total cost. About $13,000 has been donated so far.
