If you are interested in this kind of thing, the memorial is at the north end of South Beach and a little out of the way.But it's worth making the effort to see. It seems to be on a random corner, although you can see once you are there , that it is connected to a walking path going east... More

I wouldn't call this an "attraction," but I would call it something you should really go see and spend a few minutes' worth of introspection. We had seen an article about Miami's Holocaust Memorial a couple of years ago and decided to go a little out of our way to see it while we were in Miami Beach. We've seen... More

In the same time, you will learn historical information and feel this particular ambiance which is really well transcripted in a scenographic approach till this giant hand trying to reach the sky in the middle of the memorial.

This is a place that everyone visiting Miami Beach should see. We have seen concentration camps in Germany, but also this was very impressive. You shouldn't ever forget these people!

Words won't do it--this memorial must be seen. It provides both an informative overview of the Holocaust as well as a magnificent and unique work of art. Make sure you visit the small visitor center as it is often staffed by Holocaust survivors.
