The Times of Israel reports on a new light display in the Netherlands that will commemorate the Holocaust for International Holocaust Remembrance Day, which falls on January 27th.

A Dutch artist is installing a light display commemorating the Holocaust in 150 municipalities ahead of International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

Daan Roosegaarde’s “Light of Life” project features dark spaces with stones that light up briefly.

Roosegaarde chose the theme of stones because Jewish custom is to place them on the headstones of their loved ones, the GIC news site reported.
