JGSLA’s November 19th meeting– a guided tour
Program Description: Aviyah Farkas and Ronnie Wexler docents at the Holocaust Museum LA, the oldest Holocaust Museum in the United States, have invited the members of JGSLA to a private tour.
Holocaust Museum LA, formerly known as Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust, is a museum located in Pan Pacific Park within the Fairfax district of Los Angeles, California. Founded in 1961 by Holocaust survivors, Holocaust Museum LA is the oldest museum of its kind in the United States. Its mission is to commemorate those murdered in the Holocaust, honor those who survived, educate about the Holocaust, and inspire a more dignified and humane world. Holocaust Museum LA opened its permanent subterranean building in Pan Pacific Park in October, 2010.
The juxtaposition of the physical building and the surrounding park is a key component in the architectural design of the building. The museum is divided into three spaces: the internal museum space, the Goldrich Family Foundation Children’s Memorial, and the outdoor Martyrs Memorial.
A map of Pan Pacific Park and parking options is attached.
