Adding Your Family’s Names to the Nashville Holocaust Memorial

If you’ve considered adding a loved one’s name to the Pillars of Remembrance at the Nashville Holocaust Memorial (NHM), your opportunity is here.

The NHM Committee is pleased to announce that it is accepting orders for new inscriptions on its memorial pillars. The Memorial, located on the grounds of the Gordon Jewish Community Center in Bellevue, is a sacred space for remembering those who suffered during the Holocaust. The twelve Pillars of Remembrance contain names of family members who perished, as well as those who survived and subsequently lived in the Nashville area. Donors can select from several inscription formats.

Holocaust Memorial Committee Chair, Felicia Anchor, commented, “For many of us second- and third-generation survivors, there is no cemetery we can visit to remember and honor our loved ones lost in the Shoah. The Memorial was created for this purpose; as well as to educate future generations about the dangers of antisemitism and other forms of hatred. Recently we’ve had many requests to add names to the site, and we’re happy to offer this opportunity.”

The minimum inscription of two lines costs $350. One or two additional lines are available at $175 each. You can acquaint yourself with the pillars and inscription formats on the website (ignore the pricing there). There are also brief biographies of those remembered. The deadline to order and pay for an inscription is February 28, 2023. To place an order or ask questions, email us at The Committee is happy to work with you to honor and remember your family.
