“Pinat Hatikvah”, A Corner of Hope, will emphasize the strengths of humanity—the will to survive, the ability to help fellow human beings in the face of adversity, the capacity for compassion, understanding and peace. In creating such a place, HERC seeks to create a major fundraising project that will help sustain Holocaust education in Milwaukee and southeastern Wisconsin.
An outdoor space centered by a sculpture as a focal point. The space allows families to come to reflect and to remember loved ones who died during the Holocaust or who survived the Holocaust, and to honor those who brought light to a dark time. Rather than being a place to commemorate death, ‘Corner of Hope’ is a place to celebrate life and continuity. The sculpture and surrounding design provides a place of contemplation and peace with a message of hope.
