Long Description:
The New Orleans Holocaust Memorial, which was dedicated in June 2003, is a multicolored aluminium sculpture created by Israeli artist Yaacov Agam to remember Nazi Regime's mass murder of 6 million Jews, as well as millions of others. It is set in a small circular plaza in the park, which runs along the Mississippi River.

This piece is an example of kinetic Art and the interpretation the viewer gets is dynamic and different depending of the angle one is viewing the piece. The artist, Yaacov Agam is the pioneer of kinetic art. Born in 1928, Agam’s works are included in the collections of the world’s great museums.

The sculpture has nine panels, each with different designs. As you go around and view the sculpture from different angles, the designs on the panels meld to form 10 different images.

The first view is a bright yellow Star of David, and passing in front of the various panels of the sculpture, they depict in turn the darkness of the Holocaust, the chaos of the world, and finally faith, hope and renewal. The sculpture is a tribute to the resilience of the Jews, a call to never repeat the tragedy of the Holocaust, and also an impressive and dynamic work of art.
