The text at the base of the statue reads:
In memory of the six million Jews murdered in the Holocaust.
In memory of the millions more destroyed by prejudice
and hatred during World War II.
In memory of those righteous and courageous few who risked
their lives to save the victims of Nazism.
May this memorial inspire us to resist tyranny and inhumanity
wherever and whenever they threaten.
