12 Millstone Campus Dr., St. Louis, MO, 63146 / Cake artist: Henryk Ptasiewicz
Opened in 1995, it is part of the Jewish Federation of St. Louis. The museum contains several photos, video and artifacts from pre- and post- World War II, and covering the history of Nazi Germany. Temporary exhibits, guest lectures, film series and many workshops take place at the museum. Outside of the museum is the Garden of Remembrance.
Cake placement date: February 21
Where is the cake now?: Unknown. The cake was temporarily removed in mid-to-late December 2014 because of its usage at a private party (at the Westwood Country Club). Sadly, the museum’s director did not know what to do with the cake, so they took it to a recycling plant. Not much details have been known since.
Henryk Ptasiewicz, the cake’s artist, on painting the cake: “The Yellow stars going to Heaven were the people who never got out of the death camps, The Star of David was a ribbon that never runs out. I was happy to paint it, I’m a Jew and want everyone to realize History should never be forgotten or repeated. I’m happy people saw it”
