אנדרטה לשואה ולתקומה
הפסל: יגאל תומרקין
כתיבת הפרוגרמה: אבא קובנר
פלדת קורטן

הסבר מפי האמן:
"משניגשתי לתכנן אנדרטה בעלת שני נושאים כה חזקים, כה קטביים וכה משולבים זה בזה לגבי עם ישראל ולבטא את הנושא באופן חזותי - פלסטי ולא ספרותי, רציתי לבטא מועקה פיזית עמוקה המשתחררת ופורצת לשמחה.
חשבתי על כלוב - כלא הנפתח ונפרץ: פירמידה הפוכה, אשר הבא בתוכה כלוא בבסיסה הצר והמעיק, סורגי הכלא הולכים ונפתחים אל על והכלוא מגלה מעליו את שמי התכלת, השמש והאור".
(יגאל תומרקין)

Holocaust and Revival Monument
Sculptor: Yigal Tumarkin
Blueprint composition: Abba Kovner
Corten steel

An explanation by the artist:
"When I began designing this monument, which for the Jewish people contains two themes that are so powerful, so polarized, and so intertwined, and had to articulate them in a visual-plastic, and not literary, form, I wanted to convey deep physical distress that is liberated and bursts with joy. I thought about a cage - a prison that is unlocked and broken out of: an inverted pyramid and, whoever enters it, is trapped in its narrow and oppressive base.
The prison bars gradually open up towards a higher place, and the prisoner discovers the blue skies, the sun and the light above him. "
(Yigal Tumarkin)
