North Carolina’s First Women’s Holocaust Monument “She Wouldn’t Take Off Her Boots” in Greensboro, North Carolina
Building upon the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz and the end of the Holocaust, “She Wouldn’t Take Off Her Boots” will be North Carolina’s First Women’s Holocaust Monument. This original sculpture by artist Victoria Milstein (see the bottom of the email for ways to learn more about Victoria Milstein) will honor the strength and resilience of all women.
The Monument will be beautifully situated in one of Greensboro’s downtown parks, becoming a place for the community to remember the Holocaust and have the impactful opportunity to be a witness to history. The Monument will honor those who perished and make a statement against the murder of women and children, antisemitism and all genocide. It will educate new generations about how the past can inform the present and future.
This initiative can serve as a resource for North Carolina’s Holocaust Education Act, which requires the State Board of Education to include instruction of the Holocaust and genocide. Situated near cultural and educational institutions and in the heart of downtown, the monument will offer visual tools for scholars and Holocaust educators. A portion of the monument will be made from EConcrete, an Israeli based technology, that will serve to tie the monument to the land of Israel.
We are proud that the site of this monument will be in Greensboro, a city that recognizes the diversity of our community and is committed to using the Arts as a vehicle to educate and unite in the pursuit of social justice...
