Los Angeles Neighborhoods & Sites

Klezmer music can be heard here some nights.

The Simon WIESENTHAL Center in Los Angeles is dedicated to promoting tolerance and understanding among different ethnic groups, though its primary focus is on Eastern Europe and the Holocaust. The Center features exhibits which promote the idea of tolerance by bringing photographs, historical artifacts, stories, and art work from different places. The Center also presents speakers on different subjects, concerts by groups from around the world, and other community-oriented and public events intended to foster the discussion of ethnic conflict both past and present and to nurture agreement among groups for the future.

The Center also contains a major research center in which researchers and the public can delve into issues of the Holocaust, ethnic conflicts in different parts of the world, hate crimes committed around the world, and literature examining these and similar issues. This is another feature of the Center--it enables the public to meet historians, political leaders, artists, and others with something to say about tolerance and the growth of intolerance and ethnic violence in the world today.

The neighborhood is busy as far as traffic is concerned, but this is not a neighborhood with a lot of people on the street. the Center is thus separated somewhat from the neighborhood, which is unfortunate considering the nature of the events conducted there
