Each year the Jewish community observes Yom HaShoah, or Holocaust Remembrance Day. This year marks the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the concentration camps. It also marks the 25th anniversary of Miami Beach’s Holocaust Memorial.

Isaac Klein is standing arm-in-arm with his wife at the edge of three small steps. They lead down to a pond that surrounds Kenneth Treiester’s famous Sculpture of Love and Anguish.  

Klein shared his personal account of tragedy at the hands of the Nazis.  “I will tell you a little story, a sad story about myself,” he said. “I am a holocaust survivor and one of the twins of Dr. Joseph Mengele.”
