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

It's so thrilling when you got there and se the hand pointed to the sky. You get really sad, and the ambient is heavy, it's like you feel the pain of those people. It's also good to learn about history.

Having just traveled to Eastern Europe this summer and being immersed in the history of WW2, the atrocities of the Holocaust, and visiting Auschwitz/ Birkenau, I didn't expect a memorial, in South Beach of all places, to hit a cord as much as it did. The Holocaust Memorial here is incredibly emotional and deeply saddening especially to view up close.... More

I have visited many Holocaust Memorials around the country. I am compelled and honored to do so. Please take time..it's mostly outside and is worth your time. Read the history if you are not familiar along the walls..if you are...share with those not familiar.. help them grasp the inhumanity that took place. You can spend 20 minutes or over an... More

Dont make a special trip to go here unless you really have a reason. The big bus tour makes a pass through the location. The site is small and next to the botanical gardens (also small).

It's a wonderful tribute to those who suffered. Not knowing what was there, I thought I was going to be there for a few minutes. I stayed there for a couple of hours just soaking in everything that was there.

This beautiful exhibit is free to all. It is an outside exhibit and it is impressive. I rode the South Beach local (25 cents) from the beach to avoid driving. The sculptures are beautiful and it is moving. The wall carved with the names of those lost during the Holocaust is moving.
