The Oregon Holocaust Memorial, dedicated in 2004, serves as a
permanent
reminder of the Holocaust, where millions of Jews were systematically
murdered by the Nazi government of Germany from 1933 to 1945. Many
others
were murdered because of their political or religious beliefs,
physical and
mental disabilities, sexual orientation, or assistance to the
persecuted. By
teaching the Holocaust and visiting the Memorial, there is hope that a
bright light can come out of the darkness of history.

The Memorial is located in Washington Park below the Rose Garden.
Directional signage is found near the reservoir as you travel toward
the
Rose Garden from SW Park Place. Please respect the atmosphere of this
memorial and be respectful as you search for this box.

Clues:
Park in the upper parking lot and walk down to the memorial. Be sure
you see
all the details. We found the bronze pieces on the walkway incredibly
touching. Walk around the memorial, stopping to read the names and the
story. From the point where more than memories are buried, look
straight
into the trees. There is a gap in the bushes through which you should
see a
cluster of small trees. On your way back to the car there is a path
to your
right. Take the path. Before you reach the steps, you should find the
same
cluster of trees you saw before. In the midst of that cluster is the
Holocaust Memorial Box. PLEASE DO NOT TAKE THE SHORTCUT THROUGH THE
BUSHES.
That would be incredibly disrespectful to the memorial and to those
that are
there to pay tribute to those that died.


Please email me to let me know the condition of the box.
Happy boxing, Team Nashoba
