Holocaust Museum Reopens

Next week’s reopening of the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust at its new location on Museum Row coincides with a string of events that will commemorate Yom HaShoah.

* The first, a youth observance, will take place on Tuesday, from 11 a.m. to noon, at Pan Pacific Park’s Los Angeles Holocaust Monument. Coordinated by the museum, the Bureau of Jewish Education, the United Teachers of Los Angeles, child survivor groups and Second Generation, the event will involve about 1,100 students from public, parochial and Jewish day schools throughout the city. The program will include students’ original poems and readings on the Holocaust.

* The museum’s official opening will take place the next evening at a dessert reception. Valley Beth Shalom’s Rabbi Harold Schulweis will affix the mezuzah to the door of the new quarters at 6006 Wilshire Blvd.
