BOISE - An east Boise neighborhood has a new, living memorial to the victims of the Holocaust.
Fifteen-thousand daffodils are blooming at the southwest corner of Barber Drive and Old Hickory Way -- honoring the millions of people killed in Nazi concentration camps during World War II.
A dedication ceremony was held earlier today at the site as part of National Holocaust Remembrance Day.
"The actual daffodil itself looks very similar to the Star of David that the Jewish people had to wear to designate them as such during the Holocaust," said Amanda Watson, spokeswoman for Harris Ranch. "And this is a nice living reminder of how delicate life can be, and how fragile life is, even if you do have things a little better off today. And we're very fortunate to have that."
The Harris family paid for all of the daffodil bulbs, which were planted in November. The flowers will bloom for a couple of months each spring.
