ACBHM has received the approval from the Atlantic City Council and Stockton University to move our site location from Kentucky and the Boardwalk at the Carpenter-Boggs Pavilion to the Roosevelt Pavilion at Albany and the Boardwalk in the center of the "New Stockton University Gateway Project".
The Atlantic City Boardwalk Holocaust Memorial design interpreted by Rabbi Gordon Geller, Pres. ACBHM: “An architectural depiction of the Nazi ‘Final Solution’ as a genocidal tsunami engulfing imprisoned European Jewry during WW II.”
The encased rocks symbolize cities, towns & villages once inhabited by European Jewry. The rocks are also reminiscent of the Jewish custom of leaving stones following visitation to the graves of loved ones.

With the vote of the Atlantic City Council in January, the new site has been transferred after the official proclamation vote to transfer property from the Nadine Carpenter-Boggs Pavilion at Kentucky Ave and the Boardwalk to the Roosevelt Place Pavilion at Albany Ave and the Boardwalk.
"This memorial is meant to be dedicated
to thinking and reflecting on the Holocaust"
-Daniel Libeskind, Architect, World Trade Center
