According to Adrienne Onofri, in her book Walking Brooklyn — which I have no reason to doubt — New York City's first Holocaust Memorial was in Manhattan Beach, Brooklyn. This is a very small portion of it; this is the base of a pedestal, reminding all the nations whose citizens fell victim to Hitler's Final Solution. Above this pedestal is a barb-wired column, engraved with admonitions that we remember, and in the surrounding grounds are tablets with family names of those who were murdered. The memorial is at Shore Avenue. Manhattan Beach, Brooklyn. I only showcased Belgium because of the light, if you're curious.
