Museum bash turns over new stones

Event hosted by studio execs including Pascal, Landau

Peter Iacono‘s Bel-Air backyard was transformed into a picturesque summer garden Sunday afternoon for a Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust benefit. Event, hosted by a slew of studio execs including Amy Pascal and Yair Landau, kicked off a $5 million fund-raising campaign for the museum. Plans for a permanent new site in Pan Pacific Park were unveiled by architect Hagy Belzberg.

Many Holocaust survivors attended the soiree, including Renee Firestone, who talked about revisiting painful memories. “Life goes on and you can either bury yourself or you have to go on,” she said.

Attendees were invited to bless a stone with the memory of a deceased loved one, in the Jewish tradition. Those stones will form the base of the first wall of the museum.
