Unveiled in October 2009, Romania's Holocaust Memorial finally recognises the country's role in the genocide of Europe's Jews. As the Wiesel Report - commissioned by the Romanian government to investigate the Holocaust in Romania - concluded, no country outside Germany was responsible for the deaths of more Jews than Romania. The memorial itself comprises a column on which each side is written a single Hebrew letter. Taken together they read zachor (remember). There is also a hall of remembrance, and a number of plaques containing the names of many Romanian Holocaust victims.
