    Mooie KOZ, dank.

    Maar toch even over dat Holocaust Memorial in Miami Beach (openingsfoto). Ik heb het even nagekeken want die locatie – die bij de foto als onderschrift staat – was volgens mij niet juist. En inderdaad, het is:

    Miami Beach
    1933-1945 Meridian Ave
    Miami Beach, FL 33139

    Let ook op de straatnummers!

    Wat op valt, is dat de ligging van het memorial is tegenover de Chambre of Commerce en een golfbaan. Het is in 1990 gebouwd na een toch wel wat lange aanloop met voor en tegenstanders. De laatsten zeggend:

    VOICES AGAINST THE MEMORIAL

    As preparations were being made to build the Memorial, there were those who objected to its erection. Several disapproved, arguing that Miami Beach was a place for “sun and fun” and the Memorial would be too somber for the vacation destination.

    “Gloom is doom! Don’t turn one of this city’s few bright spots into a cemetery,” said Miami Beach Garden Club member Florence Shubim. In the mid-80s, the Garden Club had plans to expand their center adjacent to where the Memorial stands, which were quashed by the Memorial’s proposed footprint.

    Others said the Memorial’s presence on city-owned land violated the separation of Church and State, arguing it was a religious monument. While the Memorial is in memory of the six million Jews who died during the Holocaust, it is a patently historical monument and any religious symbols were removed.

    Het is een mooi monument maar de locatie is verbazend.
    Zou het effect hebben?
