On one of our days, we went to the Museum of Tolerance. It is a multimedia museum designed to examine racism and prejudice around the world with a strong focus on the history of the Holocaust. It also features a tolerance section that discusses issues of prejudice in everyday life.  It is a very powerful experience to spend time here.  This is a photograph of the sculpture "Holocausto" by Mexican sculptor, José Sacal, and from this level a circular ramp rises up to the next level, and all along the walls of the ramp are portraits of Holocaust survivors who are residents of Los Angeles. One of the survivors gave a lecture in person about her experience and her story was riveting.  We all agreed that was the most powerful experience of the day.

Sounds amazing but mentally exhausting. Glad you had an opportunity to visit this museum.
