There are very few words to describe how extraordinary this memorial is. It's a must. An absolute must. Take a few minutes from your day and go and reflect, and remember here.

The memorial is the fourth of its kind that we have frequented. Although small and relatively quick to view, seeing the hand and all the names on the wall made it a very emotional experience. it will be just another of the Holocaust memorials which will allow people in the future recall what happend in WW2 so that no one...

It is a brilliant sculpture and memorial. We all know the story, but this memorial provides you with an emotional moment to contemplate and reflect on the history. A short walk from South Beach and the shopping district.

This is a very touching and humbling monument in Miami Beach. It is dedicated to the millions of Jews that were deported and killed during World War II and to those that survived. The central part is a huge hand that raises to the sky and to which many smaller naked statues try to cling as to look to escape... More

One cannot "like" anything to do with the Holocaust, but can only comment on this hair-raising creation- a masterpiece that gives the full meaning of evil in one concentrated awesome shock.

Difficult to describe - this museum is overwhelming. Not exactly 'fun,' but an incredible experience.

This outdoor memorial is worth the walk to find it . . . we entered via a shaded path of palm trees to the stark beauty of the central pond and sculpture. Although there were many others visiting the site, the design supports a very personal experience of reflection . . . complemented with visual accounts and historical documents that... More

The contrast between the glitter and glamour of Miami Beach and this monument is big, but yes, this is also Miami! It's a beautiful momument, that puts you back right on the ground and gives you a nice space/surrounding to overthink history.

You may not have come to Miami Beach for somber reflection, but the Memorial provides an opportunity to step back from all the glitz and one-upsmanship of South Beach and think about the sacrifice endured by millions not so long ago. The design of the Memorial is perfect to capture the pain of so many in a quietly dignified way.... More
