Link back to the Jerusalem Peace Memorial




The photographer was standing next to the Peace Memorial and he was taking the picture with the view down into the Rhine valley (ShUM cities). The cows are located exactly at the border to the Peace Memorial site. This photo was taken by chance directly after finishing the construction of the Jerusalem Commemorative Stone with its inscription „Yerushalayim” at the Peace Memorial site. It had been 10 days before the official inauguration of the Jerusalem Commemorative Stone. Only with the establishment of the Jerusalem Stone, the Peace Memorial site became the Jerusalem Peace Memorial.

What is the connection between the text about the Red Heifer in Tora and this Peace Memorial? The text is about cleansing from death and a main concern of the Jerusalem Peace Memorial is the message, that Judaism - even in Germany - is much more than the subject Holocaust. It is a religion of life.
