The Daffodil Project
- The Daffodil Project is an international effort that aspires to create a worldwide living Holocaust memorial by planting 1.5 million daffodils in memory of the children who perished in the Holocaust and in support of children suffering in humanitarian crises in the world today.
- To date, over 750,000 bulbs have been planted.
- The yellow daffodil blossom is reminiscent of the yellow star that many Jewish people in Europe were forced to wear during the Holocaust. It is also symbolic because it blooms each spring, reminding us that life is eternal.
The High Point Civic Association is participating in the Daffodil Project because:
- We believe all children are important in our community
- We support and appreciate diversity in our neighborhood.
- We believe in education
- We hope that by supporting this initiative we can help educate our neighbors and students, inspire our community to work together, and enhance the beauty of our community.
Since 2022, the HPCA has planted memorial gardens at the following locations:
- High Point Elementary School
- Atlanta Jewish Academy
- Ridgeview Charter School
- St. Martin’s Episcopal School - High Point Campus
- Congregation Beth Tefillah
- Windsor Meadows Park
- YMCA Soccer Fields at Windsor/Peachtree Dunwoody
