There are certain thing we should always remember. One is the Holecaust. Just like 9/11 we need to remember and honor all those who were lost to radical haters. This is a must see tour and its given by a gentlemen who was of that era. Truly insightful and educational.

Well put together memorial. Interesting to walk around and sculpture is exceptionally well done, def go around it, don't just do drive by. Memorial is actually only for Jewish victims not any other groups that were also caught up in the holocaust. Right next to botanic gardens which is a nice compliment to memorial afterwards.
