Vote today on Holocaust memorial design

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – A panel overseeing the Ohio Statehouse plans to decide Thursday whether to accept a design for a Holocaust memorial to be erected on its grounds.

The vote comes despite concerns from Richard Finan, the head of the Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board, who has questioned if the memorial would fit in at the Civil War-era Statehouse.

The privately funded, $2 million project is believed to be the first Holocaust memorial at any U.S. statehouse. It comes at Gov. John Kasich’s request.

Daniel Libeskind of New York has been recommended as the artist of the memorial. His design features a split limestone path toward two, upright panels. Cutouts on the panels are positioned to reveal a six-pointed Star of David, which is closely associated with Jewish culture.
