A model of an Nazi-run Austrian palace is being given to the new Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust, reports artdaily. A large replica of Hartheim Castle--a 410-year-old mental institution turned death factory will go on permanent loan at the Pan Pacific Park museum, thanks to a gift from Austrian officials. William C. Eacho III, the U.S. ambassador to Austria, says the model of the palace "reminds us of what can happen when society loses its moral compass and forgets the intrinsic value of human life."
