This sculpture was created by Czech survivor Naomi Blake. As a child, she was interned in Auschwitz, where many of her family died. The ten red roses around the sculpture are dedicated to her cousins, who all died in Auschwitz.

Blake studied at Hornsey School of Art. She began exhibiting her work in 1962, and her sculptures are permanently exhibited and held in collections all over the world. Two more of her pieces can be found at the University of Leicester and in London, where she now lives. Blake has another sculpture called “memorial to the six million” in the gardens.
