One does not expect to find a monument so disheartening in a tropical landscape like Miami Beach, located just a few meters from the beach and bathed in the Florida sun. This monument makes perfect sense, however, because Miami Beach's Jewish population is very large. In fact, behind New York, this city has one of the highest Jewish populations in the United States. Therefore, and because people want to remember their history, they erected this monument in memoriam to the Holocaust in 1990, to honor the six million Jews killed by Nazism. The monument is a huge bronze hand 13 meters high, upon which hundreds of men and women, representing the torment of the victims, climb.
