More Americans have been lost to AIDS than in all the U.S. wars since 1900, and 22 million people have died worldwide. But few know about the existence of the National AIDS Memorial, a seven-acre grove and sanctuary hidden in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park.

The Grove chronicles this garden's transformation from a neglected eyesore, to landscaped sanctuary, to national memorial. But as the Grove's stakeholders seek broader public recognition through an international design competition, a debate emerges about what constitutes an appropriate memorial for the AIDS pandemic.
