Los Angeles Holocaust survivors and their families, many with tears in their eyes, commemorated the 63rd anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz on Friday with the symbolic groundbreaking for the permanent home of the city’s first museum dedicated exclusively to remembering the slaughter of 12 million in World War II death camps.
The new home of the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust will be made possible through a landmark agreement with the city to build the state-of-the-art facility in Pan Pacific Park next to the Holocaust Memorial Monument in the Park La Brea area adjacent to The Grove.
