South Carolina Memorial Park
Dedication of this four-acre park on November 11, 1986 coincided with the unveiling of the South Carolina Vietnam Memorial, one of the country’s largest besides the national monument in Washington, D.C. Between 1990 and 2002, further monuments were erected, including those for World War I; Pearl Harbor; the China-Burma-India campaign; the USS Columbia; the Holocaust; and the Korean War.
South Carolina Holocaust Memorial
Unveiled on June 6, 2001, this simple, yet powerful, site promotes thoughtfulness, meditation and understanding of the Holocaust in which six million Jews and millions of others were murdered by the Nazi regime. The monument’s mission is to memorialize the dead, to honor the South Carolina Holocaust survivors and liberators, and to educate all visitors through a timeline and pictorial etchings about the Shoah, or catastrophe, of 1933 - 1946. The memorial sits atop a Star of David surrounded by four meditative benches that carry a quote from either a survivor or liberator.
