Miami Beach Street to Be Named After Nobel Laureate and Holocaust Survivor Elie Wiesel, z”l

A street adjacent to the Holocaust Memorial Miami Beach will be renamed Elie Wiesel Way in memory of the late Nobel Peace Prize laureate and Holocaust Survivor. The unveiling of the official street sign will take place Thursday, May 5 at 5:30 p.m. at the northeast corner of Pride Park, 1700 Convention Center Drive, with City and County officials in attendance, including Miami Beach Commissioner David Richardson, who led the renaming effort.
