Thurrock Council

"I am always so proud to hear of local businesses and community champions, such as Madstone, using their time to invest in Thurrock. I encourage everybody to try and take the time to visit the memorial – it truly is a remarkable garden"

Holocaust Memorial

We designed and donated the memorial in Palmers rest gardens in Grays to the diversity champions and local community. We installed the memorial on behalf of Thurrock Council in conjunction with the diversity champions to support the cause of victimisation.

The Holocaust was a unique event in 20th century history. It evolved slowly between 1933 and 1945. It began with discrimination then the Jews were separated from their communities and persecuted; and finally they were treated as less than human beings and murdered.

During the second world war the Nazis sought to murder the entire Jewish population of Europe and destroy its culture.

In 1941 there were around 11 million Jews living in Europe; by May 1945 the Nazis had murdered six million of them, one-and-a-half million of these were children.
