We spotted the hand reaching up on our way driving to our hotel, but I hadn't realised that it was not vines crawling up the arm. The memorial was far more sobering than I had anticipated and I found it more moving than visiting some of the memorials in Europe. The people of Miami have done a good thing.

A moving experience. If on Miami Beach, this is a different experience which is definitely worth the visit.

If you need a break from roasting in the sun of Miami Beach, take a few minutes to go check out this thought provoking memorial. There is not some big gift shop to take your money, just a small area, run by a survivor from Auschwitz with a few post cards and information. The attraction is the art work they... More

The "Sculpture of Love and Anguish" is suddenly in front of you as you ride through all the beauty of Miami Beach. It is a painful reminder of the history of our beloved Jewish people who died during the Holocaust. The 42-foot high bronze arm and hand are reaching upward to the sky. There are approximately 100 figures struggling to... More

It was a lot to take in. Very pretty. Saw an elderly man as we were leaving with a "survivor" badge on his chest. It's hard not to cry if you stay and read. The singing children got me.

Our past and history must be shared and this is where you will. Out of the way but easy to find, this little piece of Miami Beach is for all to see.

A very touching creative outdoor memorial that provides visitors with an extended overview of a tragic historical event. Can be visited in one half hour. Not to be missed.
