Holocaust Memorial on Miami Beach

The Holocaust Memorial on Miami Beach is a Holocaust memorial in Miami Beach, Florida. It was conceived by a committee of Holocaust survivors in 1984, formally established in 1985 as the Holocaust Memorial Committee, a non-profit organization. It was designed by Kenneth Treister on a site designated by the City of Miami Beach Commission at Meridian Avenue and Dade Boulevard. The Memorial was opened on Sunday, February 4, 1990, with Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel as guest speaker at the dedication ceremonies.

Daniel Pearl Controversy

On April 16, 2007, slain journalist Daniel Pearl was added to the Holocaust Memorial as the first non-Holocaust victim. His father, Judea Pearl, gave the reasoning for the induction as a gesture of the "forces of evil and barbarity still in the world."

The first time I went here was for a high school project. I left bawling, it was (and remains) one of the saddest experiences. The artist captured the horror of the Holocaust and honored the victims.

This is not just a drive by or walk past and you have seen it all. There are levels, in all ways.

Wow. I can't believe I put Miami's HC Memorial aside. I've gone to a few Memorials in other states and Miami has impressed me. A must visit. Learn about history. Look at photos. Respect the lives lost

Buen lugar para visitar y fotografíar. El agua del estanque tiene un tinte oscuro que hace de todo el monumento una obra que te hace poner la piel de gallina sin importar la religión que tengas!
