The “Liege a Submissive City” project aptly perpetuates memory, combining history and remembrance.
The memorial to the Jews of the Liege region is the cornerstone of this initiative. It is made up of 733 memorial stones representing the Jews who were assassinated during the war.
Each memorial stone indicates the victim’s age, first and last name, last known place of residence, age when deported, and camp of final destination. It reflects each victim’s personal and family story.
In this exhibition, the memorial presents a tribute to the victims and provides a subject for thought for present and future citizens.
