The state of Ohio dedicated a Holocaust memorial on the Statehouse grounds in Columbus.

The Ohio Holocaust and Liberators Memorial was dedicated Monday at a ceremony that drew 1,500 people, including Holocaust survivors and former US soldiers. The 18-foot-high memorial, which resembles a shattered Star of David, was designed by the prominent Polish-born architect Daniel Libeskind, the son of Holocaust survivors.

The $2.1 million memorial was funded mostly by private donations.
