For generations dating back thousands of years, people have used architecture, drawing, and other forms of art to tell their stories. The Holocaust Museum in Naples, Florida is just such a place where people can go to learn, to remember the past, and to create a more hopeful future. Waldron Carpentry had the incredible privilege of completing the carpentry work for the Holocaust Museum, and it stands as a project we’ll always remember.
At Waldron Carpentry, we wanted to give the best of our efforts in crafting woodwork worthy of such a building. To achieve this desired result took careful planning and skillful implementation. It is an honor to tell someone’s story. As each piece of carpentry is significant in the overall structure, so is the importance of accurately representing each person’s experience within the greater story. Together, as a whole, the picture is complete.
In everything, we believe that each part of our work matters and makes a difference in the outcome. Each step of a process impacts the final result, whether positively or negatively depending on the effort given. By carefully crafting the individual pieces and not taking shortcuts, the result is a masterpiece that will stand for generations.
In all of this, let us not forget the lessons we have learned from those who have gone before us. In remembering the past, we must realize that we can be the change we desire to see in the world around us. Only then can we look to the future and the stories full of hope that are yet to be written. With each of us doing our part, we can ensure that the most painful parts of history will never be repeated.
We honor the men, women, and children who faced the atrocities of the holocaust. We honor their stories and their legacies. To see the heroes who endured these incredible hardships and to hear their stories, plan a visit to the Holocaust Museum in Naples.
