An estimated 2,000 people gathered on May 1 for Los Angeles’ annual commemoration of Holocaust Remembrance Day in Pan Pacific Park. The crowd, which included octogenarians in wheelchairs, infants in strollers and people of all ages in between, listened to speeches from elected officials and community leaders who exhorted them to remember the murder of millions of innocent European Jews during World War II, which ended 66 years ago.
