CHILDREN’S HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL
Ngā taipitopito kōrero
The memorial incorporates twelve escalating ‘nesting tables’ and eighteen portraits. The first and smallest table is lined with mirrors where the viewer can observe themself. The next holds a single button, representing one child. The third, a small group of buttons representing a family unit.
Each table increases in size and volume of buttons, with the twelfth holding almost one million buttons. The eighteen portraits tell the stories of children from different countries that shared a similar fate during the Holocaust.
On the 6 February the Treaty Grounds closes its buildings for the day and the grounds become the location for the Waitangi Day Festival.
The free festival at the Treaty Grounds starts at 5am with a Dawn Service in Te Whare Rūnanga (Carved Meeting House). All-day entertainment creates a fun, festival atmosphere, with performance stages on the Upper Treaty Grounds, at the Waka Shelter and on the sports field opposite the Treaty Grounds.
More than 150 market stalls offer an amazing array of art and crafts, clothing and a wide variety of food options. Children’s activities include bouncy castles, kids racing cars and sports games.
