Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust

Tucked into the western side of Pan Pacific Park, LAMOTH is set in an area called Mid-City West. home to one of the highest concentrations of Orthodox Jews in both L.A. and the country. Opened in 2010 under a 50-year lease with the City of Los Angeles, the museum, originally designed to display the concentration camp artifacts of local Holocaust survivors, is housed in a LEED-certified building with a living roof that blends gently into the surrounding green space.

The museum’s nine rooms decrease in light as you go farther into the building and delve more deeply into the history of the Holocaust. Interactive exhibits include a virtual gallery of photographs, personal accounts written by survivors, and recreations of concentration camp rooms used for extermination and twisted medical experiments. Resistance and rescue efforts during the Holocaust and World War II are also highlighted, ending with a message of hope.
