ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) - Construction began on a symbol of hope in Downtown Alexandria.

Crews began the first stages in building the Alexandria Holocaust Memorial. When the Memorial is finished, an 18 foot tall granite obelisk will sit among memorials and quotes from Holocaust survivors.
Rabbi Arnold Task says the Memorials is an opportunity to learn from the mistakes of the past to create a better future.

"Albert Einstein said evil comes into the world not because of those who do evil but because of those who do nothing about it, and that too is something we hope to instill in the young people who come to see this." Said Task.  

When the Memorial is finished a dedication ceremony is planned for November 10th.
