Holocaust Memorial Miami Beach

Organizational Background

Dedicated on February 4, 1990, the Holocaust Memorial Miami Beach engages people of all ages and backgrounds, adults and students, over the meaning of the Holocaust during which over 6 million Jews and other peoples were murdered. This is accomplished through film screenings, cultural exhibitions, guest speakers, music programming, walking tours, and Holocaust survivor testimonials.

The Memorial has welcomed more than 2.6 million visitors, including more than 300,000 students. It annually teaches more than 90,000 visitors about the dangers of unchecked hatred and intolerance and the corresponding need to prevent future genocides. In addition, HMC provides professional development for educators and docents to ensure continued Holocaust education and cultural programs.
