Our contributing photographer Asep Mawardi stopped by Woodruff Park to check out the daffodils, which are just coming into bloom. Central Atlanta Progress, in conjunction with Am Yisrael Chai, launched the Downtown Daffodil Project as part of an effort to build a Living Holocaust Memorial by planting 1.5 million daffodils around the world to remember the one and a half million children who died in Nazi occupied Europe. The Downtown Daffodil Project contributes to the worldwide effort by creating a “ribbon of consciousness” between the Center for Civil and Human Rights and the King Center. In 2016, over 175,000 daffodil have been planted to date. There will be events and activities all month long as part of the Downtown Daffodil Celebration. Find out more at this link.
