The Cry

This is the scene that greets you as you enter the inner walled chamber of the monument (via The Passageway, below). It is interesting that this figure is turned away from the Hand reaching to the skies. I interpret it as a powerful act of inclusion; though G-d will surely bring salvation, signified by the larger sculpture, this little girl makes you, the viewer, the visitor, part of that process. Will you pick her up and carry her to safety (if not physically, then at least in memory)?
