The deadline to submit names for the Middle Tennessee Holocaust Wall of Remembrance is Friday.

They broke ground on the memorial last year.

Thursday, one of the leaders in the Jewish community spoke out about the importance of the memorial and urged people who have not yet submitted the names of loved ones yet, to do so.

The memorial will include six granite walls with the names of those lost in the holocaust.

“Similar things are occurring with other genocides around the world,â€? said Susan Limor with the Jewish Federation of Nashville.

The names can be sent to the Jewish Federation of Nashvill
