Omnibus bill creates Kol Israel Holocaust National Memorial
Buried at the base of the Kol Israel Foundation Holocaust Memorial are the ashes and artifacts of Jews who were killed by the Nazis at three concentration camps. Engraved on the surrounding walls are the names of those who died during the Holocaust and the names of survivors who have died since.
Since it was dedicated on May 28, 1961, at Zion Memorial Park in Bedford Heights, Ohio, the monument has been a place to remember and honor the victims of the Holocaust. Now, with the $1.7 trillion government funding package signed into law on Thursday by President Biden, the monument has been recognized as a national memorial.
