Today was a buzz of activity here at Elton House. We welcomed back the Association of Jewish Refugees for their monthly meeting and this month they took part in The Foundation Stones Project. When visiting a Jewish grave it is customary to leave a small pebble or stone on the headstone, by placing a stone on the grave of a Jewish person it is symbolically helping to bury their loved one – something most families of Holocaust victims were unable to do. Foundation Stones invite people to paint a stone in remembrance of the six million men, women and children murdered in the Holocaust and all other victims of Nazi persecution. Painted stones from across the UK will be laid within the foundations of the new UK Holocaust Memorial and Learning Centre. I think you will agree that the stones produced today are beautiful, thank you to all that took part.
