History/Provenance

The large Los Angeles Holocaust Monument (also known a Martyr’s Monument) was dedicated at Pan Pacific Park in 1992. In 2010, a new facility, mostly built underground, was opened as a permanent home of the Los Angeles Museum of The Holocaust next to the earlier monument. As part of the installation, two new memorials were included. One, dedicated to Jewish children killed during the Holocaust was incorporated into the architecture. A second, dedicated to individuals who helped Jews during Holocaust was included as a landscape element between The Grove (a large open space of Pan Pacific Park), and the museum. Following the pattern established a Yad Vashem in Jerusalem, trees were planted in honor of the “Righteous Gentiles”. The trees are dedicated to those who risked their lives to help Jews by country. In most cases the dedications were facilitated by the foreign ministries and Los Angeles consulates of different countries. The dedications of each memorial tree and accompanying plaque have occurred on different dates. The dedicatory inscription for each country are identical except for the name of the country and sponsoring entity. Thus, there is no attempt to differentiate the behaviors and actions of governments and central citizenry during the country nor to indicate how many individuals in any given country assisted Jews. Much of this information, however, is provided as part of the large Martyrs’ Memorial in the exhibitions of the museum.
