The inscription on the Remembrance Wall reads:
THIS PLACE OF REMEMBRANCE IS DEDICATED TO THE MEMORY OF THE 35 STUDENTS ENROLLED IN
SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY’S DIVISION OF INTERNATIONAL PROGRAMS ABROAD WHO DIED WITH 235
OTHERS AS THE RESULT OF A PLANE CRASH DECEMBER 21, 1988 OVER LOCKERBIE SCOTLAND
CAUSED BY A TERRORIST BOMB.
The Place of Remembrance was dedicated on April 22, 1990. The Place of Remembrance consists of the Remembrance Wall, a semi-circular structure made of limestone and granite, where the names of the 35 Syracuse University students who died on Pan Am Flight 103 are seen, and a circular stone bench that displays a plaque to Paula and Glenn Bouckley a couple from Clay, NY who were on Flight 103. Heather sent from Scotland was planted at the site. This Place of Remembrance is directly behind the gateway to campus on the esplanade leading to the Hall of Languages. The local architecture firm of Schleicher-Soper were retained to help design and execute the project.
Following years of exposure to the harsh climate of Central New York, the Place of Remembrance and gateway to campus had suffered weather damage resulting in shifting steps and masonry, cracks in the Wall itself, and fading of the inscriptions. A complete restoration of the memorial and gateway, including installation of new engraved panels, was completed in 2012.
The Place of Remembrance Collection contains Clippings, Correspondence, Memorabilia, Photographs and Subject Files relating to the design, construction, dedication, and restoration of the Place of Remembrance, the memorial to the victims of Pam Am 103 on Syracuse University's campus.
