The daffodils planted in Woodruff Park serve to beautify the park landscaping in a meaningful and purposeful way. The Daffodil Project is a world-wide project that empowers Holocaust Education, and aspires to build a Living Holocaust Memorial by planting 1.5 million daffodils around the world to remember and represent the one and a half million children who died senselessly in Nazi occupied Europe. The vision for this project in Downtown Atlanta includes planting daffodils along the route of the streetcar, as well as lining the path from the National Center for Civil and Human Rights to the King Center. To kick start the Downtown vision, 20,000 daffodils have been planted around the children’s playground in Woodruff Park, the city’s historic center.
