Keeping Tabs on the Holocaust.

Keeping Tabs Holocaust Sculpture

In the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh is this walk-through sculpture, made of 960 glass blocks filled with six million pop tabs, one for every life lost in the Holocaust. The nine-foot-high walls form a fractured Star of David when seen from above. It was a labor of love by a local school and took 18 years to complete.

[Andrew McLaughlin, 07/05/2020]

The collecting of the pop tabs began in 1996, and the sculpture was built from 2002 to 2013.
