The Martyrs` Forest was planted in 1951 to commemorate the victims of the Holocaust. The Six million trees which grow here are metaphorical green candles recalling the six million Jews who were killed by the Nazis. The Martyrs` Forest was planted by Keren Kayemeth Le Israel - Jewish National Fund (KKL-JNF) in co-operation with Bnei Brith west of Jerusalem, near the Kisalon riverbed.
Many Holocaust survivors have chosen to commemorate their dear ones by planting groves in their honor in the Martyrs` Forest and engrave their names on special memorial plaques. KKL-JNF has established in the Martyrs` Forest the impressive Scrolls of Fire Memorial and renovated the Martyrs` Cave.
The Martyrs` Forest boasts a wide variety of species including pines, cypresses, eucalyptus and carob trees. They blend with the indigenous oak, Israeli terebrinth and storax tree.
