The New Orleans Holocaust Memorial Sculpture is an artistic visual prayer in memory of the Six Million Jews of Europe and those millions of other victims who were tortured and murdered by the Nazis and their collaborators from 1933-1945.

The sculpture is composed of nine panels, each with different designs.  As you view the scupture from different angles, the designs on the panels meld to form distinct images.  Ten images come into view as you walk around the panels.  Click a link on the left for an interpretion of each view.

The artist, Yaacov Agam, an Israeli, is the pioneer of  kinetic art.  Born in 1928, Agam's works are included in the collections of the world's major museums.
