Memories that cannot be erased!

A museum which invites you to reflect on history and the suffering of a whole generation. The big hand sculpture simbolises the search for freedom.

The tranquility of the memorial is beautiful. The design, it does an outstanding job to serve as a place of respect, memory and reflection. It's tranquil, slightly somber but absolutely beautiful. It doesn't take long to walk through, take your time and really experience.

A beautifully designed Memorial to those that perished. Haunting statues and vivid marble reminders of what transpired will linger in your mind as you you sit by the reflecting pool. Located adjacent to the Botanical gardens It adds more peace and serenity for further thought and reflections.

This memorial is free. There is free parking in their lot. Take a moment to absorb the feeling as you walk through the tunnel, you instantly feel the same panic and sadness like they did in their last moments.

History is so important but when monstrous human tragedy occurs on such a large scale as the holocaust did, it is every generation's responsibility to remember and never forget what happened. This is a small memorial with a big message. DON'T FORGET. And don't miss this if your in Miami.

It's a small memorial but it is quite interesting. It's very tranquil and easy to walk. A nice 15 minute respite from what South Beach is.

I have read quite a bit about the holocaust and have seen photos, but never so 'real', expressing not just the torture, but the humiliation that occurred. Heart wrenching.

The whole memorial is beautiful and very well kept. A must see! The sheer amount of names on the walls and the intricately designed statues made a very emotional experience.

We didn't expect to see a memorial like this in Miami. It's the most moving thing I have ever seen. A must see for all the wrong reasons

A very odd ambience to this spot considering why it is there. It is serene and beautiful amidst the hectic back drop of Miami beach. Best time to visit is in the morning. Quieter and more peaceful than later in the day.
