Memorial Park

The largest monument of its type outside of Washington D.C., stands here as a memorial to 980 South Carolinians who died in Vietnam. The park also features a new Holocaust monument. Designed by renowned sculptor Irwin Hyman, the monument stands on a granite Star of David and features the names of Holocaust liberators and survivors of South Carolina engraved on its granite walls. The memorial includes a map of the death camps across Europe and a chronology of World War II, and has a Korean War Memorial.
