The Miami Beach Holocaust Memorial is located in the city of Miami Beach. The centerpiece of this memorial can be seen from the street. It is a sculpture of an arm reaching up to the sky. There is an Auschwitz number tattoo on the arm, in memory of the victims of the concentration camps who also were tattooed. Crawling up to the hand are around one hundred sculpted figures that represent these victims. Kenneth Triester created the sculpture. He called it “Sculpture of Love and Anguish.”
To get to the memorial, walk up a curved path, and a black granite wall on one side, and a reflecting pool on the other side will appear. You will then enter a type of tunnel, which features on its walls the names of concentration camp victims. Outside the tunnel, there is a circular area that is walled in, with the sculpture in the center. The Miami Beach Holocaust Memorial was first opened in 1990, and attracts visitors from around the world.
