I also got a chance to preview the exciting new plans for the upcoming expansion and modernization of the Museum. The new and improved Holocaust Museum LA in Pan Pacific Park will even better serve the people of Los Angeles and all those who visit for generations to come.
Today I had the privilege of touring the amazing Holocaust Museum L.A. in CD 5. It is so important that we never forget the lessons of the Holocaust, especially now given the atrocities being committed in Ukraine.

She released her dogs out of the vehicle with no leashes on, her friend met her there with her 3 dogs off leash. They were peeing on people’s vehicle tires, running up at people and leashed dogs.
Rude and illegal.
There were far to many dogs off leash there but this woman and her friend took the award for stupidity.
Today we visited this park. A woman, a “Karen” showed up with her 2 dogs, one a German Shepherd, one an obese red spaniel type dog. She pulled into the no parking zone and left her flashers on for over an hour. Yep she’s entitled.
Did anyone lose a white pup? Help us find his parents!

#tbt... to last summer, when the good folks at Live Nation LA helped us assemble 250 homeless connect kits. The kits were then distributed to our unhoused neighbors at Midtown LA Homeless Connect Day, which was held at Pan Pacific Park. We are so grateful for their support of this vital program!
Extra special thanks to these little helpers! #ParkProudLA
Some of my fondest childhood memories were made in LA City parks. I'm thrilled to open a new and improved playground today at Pan Pacific Park, with more shade and safer surfaces.

Today we celebrate nine years since the opening of the Museum's permanent home in Pan Pacific Park.
Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust was founded in 1961 by Holocaust survivors who brought together their photographs and precious objects from the Holocaust era and created a space for commemoration and education.
Until 2010, the Museum was housed in office space at the Jewish Federation building and elsewhere, where it served about 14,000 visitors annually. In the first year in our new building, 26,000 visitors visited the Museum. That number has increased every year, with more than 60,000 people visiting the Museum last year.
