This place is a restful spot to contemplate life. It is easy to get lost in the quotes on the wall, and shed a tear or two. “In spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart. I simply can’t build up my hopes on a foundation consisting of confusion, misery, and death. I see the... More

This is a peaceful place to pray and think quietly as you visit Boise. You must read all the quotes and readings to make you think how fortunate we are.The site is well maintained and parking is close by. The structures are excellent and relevant to the memorial. A must stop in Boise.

Very beautiful peaceful memorial. The memorial is near the Boise library. It is well maintained. There are several walls along the memorial with some wonderful, powerful and historical quotes from some great people in history, including Anne Frank. Well worth your time.

The Idaho Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial deserves a visit of everybody who happens to be in the Boise area. The Memorial presents thoughts, statements and actions related to freedom (rather lack thereof) and human rights. When walking through the Memorial the visitor is reminded that these themes have been relevant throughout human history. We must not forget that the... More

Right off the Greenbelt (paved riding trail) is this fantasitic open air memorial. Whether you drive in and park or bike in, this is a great place to reflect on those freedoms and human rights.

What an oasis of quiet and calm within the city. This is a wonderfully designed spot, and while Anne Frank is certainly well reflected in the monument, there are so many others whose struggles are documented here as well. This quiet place has a beautiful stream running through it, benches to contemplate on and is a place of pride for... More

Our daughter is a big supporter of ending Social Injustice and genocide. While traveling in Idaho, she wanted to stop at the Memorial in Boise. Its an outdoor memorial with quotes from Anne Franke and many others etched in stone. Take time to read, sit, and meditate on the words. Hear what the words are saying and you will find... More

The purpose of this memorial is to honor Anne Frank and so many who stood for the cause of justice, human dignity and human rights. It will elevate your soul. The physical nature of the Memorial is true to its Western location: beautiful local sandstone; trees, bushes and flowers that take the West's weather; and a tumbling creek weaving through... More

A little difficult to find hidden back on a dead end area of local shops. Very relaxing stop to sit and have a picnic near the stream and fountain. Make sure to leave some times to meander and read the etchings of quotes. Very thought provoking. Good for older elementary age children up through college with repeat visits as children... More

This is a great place to sit and meditate or teach. It's a must see in Boise. The memorial was sponsored by donations from local human rights groups and education associations.
