The Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust (LAMOTH), which moved into a new $20 million building in 2010, is seeking a new executive director.
As I address you today, I am both bereft and optimistic. I am bereft for the obvious reasons one feels the deep, unfathomable sense of loss for what the Holocaust represents: the taking away from this world of 6 million innocent Jews; the destruction of the European communities and cultures they represented; the murder of approximately 3 million other victims persecuted by the Nazis; the political assassination of 3 million Poles; the death of the rich history of Jewish life in Poland; the severing or even amputation of Jewish-Polish relationships that had evolved for generations; and more. I could easily go on.
Museum of Holocaust names new director.
