TREE GROVE: ESCAPE AND RESISTANCE
Forests hid sites of Nazi mass murder. Yet they also concealed sites of escape and resistance. In the forests in Greece, Yugoslavia, and elsewhere, Jewish families braved heat and cold in rustic camps. Scavenging for food, they tended the frail and prepared the strong to fight.
The Philadelphia Holocaust Remembrance Foundation dedicates these trees to all people who used the shadows of forests to organize against Nazi ideology, as well as those who found shelter under its canopies.
