APPLICATION FOR GENERATION SC MEMBERSHIP
For the past ten years, GEN SC has been involved in a project to see a local Holocaust Memorial become a reality in the mid-south. In 2010, they learned of Horn Lake Middle School’s efforts to raise 1.5 million pennies to represent the 1.5 million children who were killed in the Holocaust. GEN SC prayed and sought the LORD’s heart to love, learn and lead in this endeavor. By 2012, GEN SC had raised over 4,000 of the pennies needed for Horn Lake Middle School to meet the goal of 1.5 million pennies and today those pennies are in storage awaiting a place to be memorialized.
At the 2014 Israel Fest, GEN SC had the privilege of presenting Mr. Jack Cohen with the first of ten machetes by artist, Rick Wienecke – www.castingseeds.com. Architect, Doug Thornton of AREC has designed the future plan for the memorial to hold the 1.5 million pennies and the sculpture by Mr. Wienecke, both now in storage awaiting their future home. The visual of how many children were brutally murdered will be a vivid reminder of how we are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
In 2017, Gen SC presented Mr. Leonid Saharovici with a smaller version of Wienecke's sculpture. It was a very moving moment for students and children. In 2019, Gen SC hosted the "Have a Heart for Holocaust Banquet" raising over $7,000 for the Unknown Child Foundation and remembering Mr. Saharovici who passed in November 0f 2018.
