TRAVEL

We expected a response.
But this is ridiculous.

It would have been one thing to just offer a
new low roundtrip El Al airfare to Israel.
But for just $16/day; we decided to go ahead
and also offer five nights in a first class hotel.
Plus free breakfasts. Plus a free car rental.
Not all at once now

he tranquil reflecting
pool has white lilies
floating in the Florida
sunlight.
The sun casts a glow on the
columns of Jerusalem stone
near the pool and on the
granite walls where names
are carefully inscribed.
Visitors pause, silent, as
they read the names, and look
at the displays — the maps of
Europe, the photographs, the
words of the Partisans'
Anthem.
They stop and gaze, too, at
the bronze sculpture, 42 feet
high, titled The Sculpture of
Love and Anguish, which por-
trays one outstretched arm,
with the numbers of a tatoo
clearly visible.
The Holocaust Memorial in
Miami Beach draws hundreds
of visitors each day: tourists
and residents, young and old,
students on school tours and
survivors on private
pilgrimages.
For the Jewish traveler, a
visit to this memorial, or any
of the nation's varied
Holocaust memorials, can
add a new dimension to a
travel experience. These
memorials are not only im-

portant reminders of history,
but often are creative and im-
aginative works of art.
That is surely true of the
memorial in Miami Beach.
Opened on February 4, 1990,
it is the nation's newest
memorial. Until the U.S.
Holocaust Memorial in the
nation's capital is- completed
in 1992, it is also the most
unusual and extensive.
This open-air memorial at
1933 Meridian Avenue in
south Miami Beach offers the
Jewish traveler a chance to
see an unusual blend of
nature, sculpture, and history.
The reflecting pool, the
tropical plants, the columns
of Jerusalem stone, the
granite walls all combine to
create a memorial in which
art and imagination
transform the raw material of
history.
"Everyone who walks out
has tears in their eyes," says
volunteer Joe Rubin, a sur-
vivor and full-time volunteer
at the memorial.
Every day Mr. Rubin sees
visitors gaze at the vivid
photos showing Holocaust
scenes, look at the historical
displays, or pause and search
the names etched into the
granite walls — which now
number 20,000, with more to
be etched on the inner walls.
