We should never forget! This Memorial is a beautiful piece that causes reflection and educates people about our past with the hopes of not repeating it in the future. The architecture and sculpture are beautiful - a must see.

This beautiful memorial is extremely moving. Move past the photos from the outside and venture in to the inner sanctum. A stunning memorial.

The Holocaust Memorial is a must see when you are in the Miami Beach area. It's just a short walk from the Miami Botanical Garden, so you only have to pay for parking there. Come when its cool so you can sit a while to take it all in.

The memorial itself is beyond expectations. It is a beautiful memorial to an unthinkable horror. It is well kept, clean and informative. The etched marble is gorgeous.

A small area with a well-done memorial to the Jews who died in the Holocaust. The center piece has to be seen in person to be appreciated. A walk around it and the building is impressive.

We found this memorial extremely moving and so well presented. It is quite difficult to find so just look out for a large hand pointing to the sky. The sculptures were amazing and we felt so moved by the sounds and the overall atmosphere.

This Memorial was placed here because of the significance of the large population of Holocaust survivors in this region The sad, heart-wrenching sculptures were done by Kenneth Treisler. One can barely walk past these without feeling the pain and the anguish of the victims. Our hearts broke at the sight of the little kids, crying alone, or being wrenched away... More

This is possibly the most touching holocaust memorial I've seen, including all over the US, Europe & Israel. Definitely the most important of all the "must see" sites for anyone visiting the area.
