Beautiful tribute

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.

This memorial is very touching. Human rights are something that is near and dear to everyone. I love history. Reading all the quotes of people that transformed the world is very inspiring to me.

Very thought provoking. So many wonderful examples of quotes and stories from individuals regarding persecution, intolerance, appreciation; of warnings for the future and memories out of the past. Beautiful and riveting. I stood and read all. Well Done.

There isn't much to see here, but if you have kids and are near the Zoo or Greenbelt, and you want to use it as a history lesson, then take a few minutes to see it.

This is a beautiful monument to peace and tolerance. The sayings range the gamut from famous to obscure, and including minority voices that have been victimized so regularly in our sad human history. Best in spring, summer and fall, as it is a bit bare in the winter without the water flowing, but you cannot leave without being impacted and... More

This is a gorgeous memorial right along the Boise River Greenbelt. It was so touching I cried. There are several wind up machines you wind in order to hear small audio clips. I personally found it annoying that we'd have to constantly wind it while listening. Why not try solar power instead? One of the machines was missing a handle... More

This memorial is a great tribute to civil rights. There are beautifully etched rocks surrounded by water next to the Boise River Greenbelt, library, and Boise State Univ. If you are in the area please stop by and admire the memorial.

We have been to both the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam, and the Holocaust Museum in DC. This memorial ranks right up there with them in its impact. Most surprising to find this here, it changed my mind about Boise and Idaho in general. We found Boise to be a delight and this memorial to be a significant cultural monument.

This is a very nice memorial to Anne Frank and human rights in general. The disposition of the statue and the circling benches, and the many interesting texts about the issues humanity has faced and still faces are inspiring and an invitation for dialogue and debate; visiting with a few friends is highly recommended! There are also some recordings one... More

An Anne Frank memorial in Boise? It was a surprise to us, and a pleasant one. The area is filled with inspirational and thought provoking quotes and pictures on stone slabs. The area was under construction when we visited, and it appeared that there were some audio programs but they were not accessible during our visit. There are also quotes... More
