Inauguration of the National Holocaust Monument

On September 2017, 2017, Canada inaugurated its first national Holocaust Monument, in Ottawa, an endeavour ten years in the making. A grassroots campaign to build the monument was launched in 2007 by a student at the University of Ottawa, Laura Grossman, and construction on the project began last year. It was supported by the National Holocaust Monument Development Council, with matching funds from the Canadian Government. The concept of monument, landscape of loss, memory and survival, came from Toronto-based Lord Cultural Resources, and was chosen in 2014 from a shortlist that included proposals from the architects David Adjaye and Ron Arad.

The National Holocaust Monument will be Canada’s first national monument dedicated to the Holocaust.

The monument is set to be Innaugerated on September 27th, 2017. And will be open to the public on September 28th.

This thought piece by Gail Dexter Lord and Dov Goldstein, reflects on Lord Cultural Resources' journey towards the creation of the National Holocaust Monument in Canada-- from the initial Request for Qualifications through to opening day. This includes the development of the right team, and concept, in order to strike a balance between the Holocaust's universal significance and the Canadian context.
