The place you have to see

Beautiful and terrible place at the same time. Prepare to get emotional... As an Europian this place might have been even more touching.

It is a memorial for the 6 million people who was lost due to the holocaust and just standing among the names and seeing the statue made me emotional. It is directly next to the botanical gardens so you can walk over to that after you have finished the holocaust if you want to. An interesting fact is that the... More

This was such a moving memorial that I don't think anyone can go through it reading about the sufferings and not shed a tear

Beautiful tribute! Reading the names and looking and the pictures really evoke emotions. As a grandchild of holocaust survivors it was really touching.

We visited it at the advice of others and I can tell you it was an afternoon well spent! I had absolutely no idea what to expect, so the result rather blew me away. Very powerful and something I will never forget!

This is such a powerful memorial. Haunting. Very unusual. Definitely worth a visit. Must go in and see it in full view, not just from the street. Admission is free, although donations are gratefully accepted.

We visited the memorial during a tour. I didn't know what to expect and was very moved by the whole experience there. A very moving tribute to a horrible period in time.

Even though I am not Jewish and have no connections to the faith, I visit every holocaust memorial that I can just so I never forget. This one was without doubt one of the most emotion evoking I have ever seen. I had cold chills from the time I got there until the time I left. The only down side... More

We first visited the memorial on a city bus tour then later went back on our own to have time to read the historic information displayed. It is a short walk from the Ocean Drive/Lincoln Rd. area and we found it to be a very moving experience. Be sure to enter the inner area not visible from the street for... More

Incredible experience. I am not Jewish so I really wondered if I wanted to see this. As my host was she drove us by there. Be sure to actually visit and not just drive by. You can see a lot o statue from the street but to experience it go into the site. I guaranteed you that when you walk... More
