Introductory stone to the “Avenue of the Righteous Gentiles.”  Along this tree–lined avenue are plaques and trees that commemorate some of 20,757 people who have been recognized as those who helped save Jews from the Holocaust.  The trees are Carob Trees: known for their sturdiness and strength--not cypress (symbols of pride).

Among them are Oscar Schindler, of “Schindler’s List” fame, and the well–known Dutch Christian Corrie ten Boom.
