The largest memorial to holocaust victims in Latvia is in Liepāja in the Šķēde dunes. The memorial is dedicated to the more than 3000 Liepāja Jews killed in World War II. It is in the shape of Israel’s national symbol – the menorah or the seven-branch lampstand. Its contour is clearly visible from a birds-eye view and is made of split boulders and granite blocks.
The “lights” of the menorah are represented by granite pillars with verses from the Lamentations of Jeremiah engraved in Hebrew, English, Latvian and Russian.
