Holocaust memorial planned for Atlantic City

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - December 6, 2009 Go where the people are. Rabbi Gordon Geller of Temple Emeth Shalom in Margate tells The Philadelphia Inquirer his group plans to unveil the still-to-be-designed memorial in 2012 on a 60-foot stretch of the walkway between New York and Kentucky Avenues. The real estate was donated by the Atlantic City Council. It's estimated about 10 million people stroll Atlantic City's boardwalk each year. Geller's group is holding an online competition for a design that will be judged by a panel of architectural and design experts. Six finalists will be chosen after the mid-March deadline, and a winner will be chosen in August and will receive $25,000.
