OTHER MEMORIAL SITES

* Martyrs Memorial and Museum of the Holocaust, 6505 Wilshire Blvd., in Los Angeles. The museum, open since 1978, features a historic photo collection that documents events from 1933-45. It also displays 70 watercolors that were hidden in Czechoslovakia during that era.

* Museum of Tolerance at the Simon Wiesenthal Center, 9760 West Pico Blvd., Los Angeles. Ongoing museum displays focus on educating visitors about racial hatred and intolerance, with particular emphasis on events in Germany leading up to Hitler's campaign of genocide against Jews. (An article on the museum appeared in the March 15 Monitor.)

* Holocaust Memorial, 1933-45 Meridian Ave., Miami Beach, Fla. Built in 1990, the outdoor memorial consists of three sections: a space devoted to photographs and written memorabilia, a sculpture rotunda, and a wall inscribed with individual victims' names that were sent in by their families.

* Additional cities have plans to construct, or have already built, memorials. In Boston last Sunday, a dedication ceremony for the New England Holocaust Memorial was held at the proposed Union Street Park site, across from City Hall. New York City is building the Museum of Jewish Heritage's Living Memorial to the Holocaust in Battery Park.
