The Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust is now Holocaust Museum Los Angeles with a new logo and expanded vision for the future. The first survivor-founded Holocaust museum in the United States traces its origins to the 1960s, when a group of survivors met and discovered that each of them had a photograph, document or personal item from before the war.
They decided that these artifacts needed a permanent home where they could be displayed safely and in perpetuity. They also wanted a place to memorialize their dead and help to educate the public so that no one would ever forget.
