Biographical / Historical

Eternal Life-Hemshech, Inc., was formed on September 3, 1964, by survivors of the Nazi Holocaust, 1933-1945, who settled in the metropolitan Atlanta area. The primary goal was to erect a monument in memory of their six million brethren who did not survive. The purpose of the organization is to perpetuate the memory of the six million Jewish victims who perished in this attempt at genocide known as the Holocaust; to bear witness and to tell the story repeatedly and continually so that these acts of unspeakable cruelty may never again be perpetrated on any group of people; and to pass the legacy on to their children to never allow the victims of this tragic event to be forgotten.
