"Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust"


Hundreds of people toured the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust during its grand opening recently at Pan Pacific Park.

The museum, founded in 1961, has been moved four times over the years, but never had its own building and has always had limited space. But its new $18 million, high-tech, very green museum changes all that, executive director Mark Rothman said.

The building, designed so it is partially underground to preserve green space, is located next to the Martyrs Memorial, built in the park 18 years ago.

If more beautiful snow is needed for your wall, how about letting an artist paint it for you. This tranquil picture, by American painter at the turn of the 20th century, John Henry Twachtman, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8DP7S7 , is an example of many others to be found at wahooart.com that can be ordered online from as a canvas print of any size to be delivered to your door.
