other graveyards

boston's memorial to the great hunger in ireland (1845-1852), that killed a million people and drove another million to emigrate, mostly to america

four blocks away is the new england holocaust memorial --- a series of very tall glass panels engraved with numbers representing the millions who died in the nazi concentration camps in the 1930s and 1940s --- the last night i was in town, some asshole broke one of the panels, the second time the memorial has been vandalized this summer --- 17 yr old quickly apprehended
