Monument for Ethiopian immigrants - Mount Herzl

Jerusalem

A memorial in Mount Herzl, was built for the defense ministry to commemorate the Ethiopian immigrants who were killed while trying to immigrate to Israel through the desert.
 

The memorial sits on a 3 dunam site. Monoliths were built on the site from bare concrete, to symbolize the straw huts where the Ethiopians used to live. Reinforced concrete walls were built on the edges of the site, in order to create a lawn for gathering for Ethiopian people on memorial days. The area is landscaped with grass, low plants and trees.
