CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - The architect of the Holocaust Memorial in Charleston says time is supposed to heal, but in the case of the Holocaust, it has not done so.

Architect Jonathan Levi, South Carolina Chief Justice Jean Toal and several hundred people attended Sunday as the memorial was rededicated.

The Post and Courier of Charleston reports (https://bit.ly/1aKfukK) that the memorial was built in 1999. Levi says the past 16 years have done little to help healing.

The memorial was rededicated as the names of the 24 major European concentration camps added to it.

Toal was the keynote speaker.

She helped create a program at the U.S. Holocaust Museum in Washington in which chief justices, judges and others examine how German judges during the Nazi era failed to uphold basic principles of law.
