Florida Holocaust Museum’s lanterns temporarily off

For more than two decades, flames of the 11 lanterns outside the Florida Holocaust Museum in downtown St. Petersburg have burned in remembrance of the more than 11 million people who perished during the Holocaust, six million of them Jews.

Over the past few years, an increasing number of the gas lanterns stopped working properly and specialists were unable to repair them. Recently, the strong odor of gas accompanied the outages and the museum was advised to have the gas lanterns turned off. The gas was turned off safely and all gas lines removed.

The museum is researching alternative methods to bring the memorial flames back to shine outside the museum in perpetuity. The museum is located at 55 Fifth St. S., St. Petersburg.
