Children’s Tile Wall
The Children’s Tile Wall (also known as the Wall of Remembrance) is located on the Museum’s lower level. Dedicated by the Remember the Children Committee in April 1993, the Children’s Tile Wall memorializes the children murdered in the Holocaust. A quotation from Yitzhak Katzenelson appears above the tiles: “The first to perish were the children...From these a new dawn might have risen.” American schoolchildren painted the more than 3,000 tiles, many of which call for peace, hope, remembrance, and freedom.
