Work of art

A must see in my opinion! Rises out of a pool of water with a very well laid out walkway. You can see it casually driving by but its worth it to stop and take a closer look.

Not much to see. I was disappointed. However, not totally useless from an educational perspective. It is outdoors.

The whole thing was interesting and the statue of the pleading child as you enter the inner area is truly haunting

The artistry of this memorial will move you to your soul. My father was in world war II and told stories about liberating a camp. His pictures told a nightmare of a story. It stuck with me and after seeing that this memorial existed, I had to go. As far as describing it, I couldn't possibly do this site justice... More

Very moving and sad. Makes you stop and think and is very informative to read the exhibit. Glad we went.

We stumbled upon the memorial while we were walking around. The design and sculptures were wrought with emotion. It was impossible not to be moved by the art alone. The back wall filled in the gaps that we had either forgotten or never new how horrific it all was.

This is very moving and emotional memorial. Walk slow...think about what happened. Very sad, but also very encouraging regarding the life that has sprung from this horrific act of men.

made up of stone, water and inscriptions in an feet unique way. Located in Miami Beach within walking distance to the great Bass Museum and Botanical gardens, this walking tour is worth your time. Sitting at the Memorial, one can feel peace and serenity.

This is an outstanding outdoor Holocaust memorial! Visitors should plan to spend at least an hour there reading the material, following the progress of the exhibits and talking to the Holocaust survivors who are usually present during most daylight hours. Anyone who visits will be certain to learn both intellectually and emotionally about this horrendous time in human history.

I've visited several Holocaust Memorials and museums. It provided nothing exceptional visually or by way of interpretation. Skip it and stroll the beach instead.
