Miami Beach Voters Approve Expansion of Holocaust Memorial Miami Beach

The Holocaust Memorial Miami Beach received overwhelming approval to build a new Learning Center. The local referendum was approved by nearly 80 percent of participating voters. “We are delighted by the decisive victory,” said Holocaust Memorial Board Chair Sidney Pertnoy. “Winning by such a landslide is a powerful endorsement by the community of the critical work of the Holocaust Memorial. Our plan is to begin construction of the Learning Center and cut the ribbon to open our new facility as soon as possible. We're all deeply grateful for the visionary leadership of the Memorial's Founders and the wonderful support of the City of Miami Beach.” The approval of the referendum will allow for additional classrooms and teaching facilities on the lot along Dade Boulevard and Meridian Avenue, enabling the Memorial to expand its reach far beyond its 100,000 annual visitors.
