                                    We are working in partnership with The Daffodil Project and Am                                           Yisrael Chai to build a worldwide Living Holocaust Memorial by                                           planting 1.5 million daffodils in memory of the children who                                                 perished in the Holocaust and in support for children suffering in                                       humanitarian crises in the world today.

                                     The shape and color of the daffodils represent the yellow stars that Jews were forced to wear during the Holocaust. Yellow is the color of remembrance. Daffodils represent our poignant hope for the future. They are resilient and return with a burst of color each spring, signifying hope, renewal and beauty. The daffodils also honor those who survived the Holocaust and went on to build new lives after this dark and difficult period.
