Emily Young (Britain)
1032 W. Sheridan Rd.
Created in 2003, the piece spent years in London’s Kew Gardens before coming to Loyola in 2010. The statue now sits in union with the Martyrs Memorial and serves as a reminder that many innocent people were murdered during the civil war in El Salvador. Father Michael J. Garanzini, S.J., who was the University’s president when the statue was installed, said in 2011: “We felt that a memorial to these martyrs was appropriate for our campus because these Jesuits led extraordinary lives and did some bold and courageous things in their fight for the people of that Central American country.”
