The Teardrop


This is "The Teardrop" which stands at the centre of the Peace Garden in the abbey grounds of Bury St Edmunds. It's the annual meeting point for marking Holocaust Memorial Day on 27th January. However, the sculpture is more than this because it is dedicated to every victim of genocide. Sadly this type of massacre stretches way back in time and those 57 Jewish residents of the city who were murdered by a group of rampaging Christian crusaders on Palm Sunday on 19th March 1190 are amongst those who are remembered.

  1. That's very evocative, isn't it? To see yourself reflected in the tears of another?
