Our daughter, a Savannah College Art and Design graduate, encouraged my husband and I not to miss visiting this outdoor museum while traveling with our friends to Miami. The art depicting the emotions of the Holocaust left the four of us speechless! A historical remembrance of people, time, and nations in a beautiful, tranquil setting left each one of us... More

Saw the monument on the Duck Tour. Very moving piece of art. Will revisit it when I return and am able to spend time on foot in the area.

IT is located near the Miami Convention Center, and has some very interesting sculptures outside. I enjoyed reading on the wall the history of the holocaust, saw some pics, and the names of the victims. I recommend you visit it, and see it.

Unlike other holocaust memorials, this one is quite tranquil, gets its point across very well and provides am I'm depth look at the effects of this horrible time. The statues commissioned specially for here (see pictures below) are especially poignant and a powerful reminder that these were human beings being killed-it is a very emotional piece of art as are...

An amazing piece of history; a must see in Miami Beach. You will need to take the time to walk through time as photos, sculptures and words of history surround you. A solemn reminder to us all.

Me and my family visited this memorial two weeks ago. It is a very impressive memorial and definitely worth a visit. Along the back wall there is a very thorough history of the Holocaust, helping the younger members of my group understand the enormity of what happened.

This monument to the Holocaust provides many layers of learning, contemplation and appreciation. It is set on a small piece of land, next to the Miami Beach Botanical Garden - a nice respite after a visit. Sculptures with quotes from Anne Frank precede and follow the visit to the actual memorial. Wall text repeat the historical timeline of the war.... More
