When Will Hindus have this sense of history?

 

“The other option would have been to pull down the structure, but the leaders of the Jewish community were keen on restoring the place for its symbolic importance,”

 

“On the second floor, too, amidst the freshly-coated walls, the spot where the Rabbi was shot dead by the terrorists, stands untouched.”

 

“We do not want to whitewash history. We want to keep certain parts the way the terrorists had left it. Our aim is to provide the world a perspective that there is hope and that a candle can light up a dark room,”

 

Apart from the museum, the Chabad international team is also working on building a memorial in remembrance of all the lives that were lost during the terror attacks across Mumbai.

According to Nick Appelbaum, of Ralph Appelbaum Associates, New York, which is also working on the museum and memorial project alongside the Mahimturas, “The memorial will be the first-of-its-kind in India, wherein the names of every individual who perished in the attacks will be inscribed on it.” The memorial will be built on the terrace.
