A few quiet streets away from the insanity of South Beach is a stunning memorial of the Jewish holocaust. Many visitors driving by only catch a glimpse of the giant bronze arm reaching for freedom.
Sculpture of Love and Anguish was created in 1984 by survivor Kenneth Triester. The arm has an Auschwitz tattoo and features terrified prisoners scrambling to escape.
No matter how many times I hear the story, it still drops me like a hammer.
I think of Sophie’s Choice.
I think of Schindler’s List.
And I think how impossible it is that genocide is still happening in the world today. 😦
