The Friday Photo #61 – A stark reminder in Portland

While wandering around Washington Park and enjoying the sunshine, I happened to stumble across the entrance to the Holocaust Memorial.  Walking up the path towards the memorial wall I noticed a few items strewn around in my way.

Initially I wondered if there was a child nearby who had left their toys lying around, but upon closer inspection I realised that those items were actually small sculptures.  A doll, a violin, some spectacles and most poignant of all, the charred remains of a teddy bear.  Somebody had taken the time to place a daffodil from the nearby gardens beside it – a beautiful touch.
