Behind The Rose

Behind the rose dedications in The Holocaust Centre's memorial gardens lie poignant memories of the lives they commemorate. These are a part of The Holocaust Centre and its life, yet few except those who have dedicated a rose at the Centre know the individual human story behind those heartfelt words on each plaque; for many, the only words of remembrance inscribed anywhere. 

Inspired by the theme for Holocaust Memorial Day 2011 - 'Untold Stories' - and by the feature which used to run in The Holocaust Centre's Perspective magazine (telling the story behind a different rose in each issue), this book honours the memory of those who were murdered by the Nazis and offers depply personal insights into some of their lives.
