Look for it.

This memorial is beautifully done. The carefully chosen quotes each deserve time to mull over and thankfully there are well placed benches to allow one to do just that.The sun can be punishingly hot in Boise and there is little shade. I definitely recommend going but don't try it when the sun is high. This beautiful place is a very... More

What a wonderful place to visit. Serene memorial with waterfalls, reflecting pools, lots of info about Anne Frank. There are walls with quotes from Anne Frank, Robert Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Mahatma Gandhi, Eleanor Roosevelt and others. For my wife, who knew very little about Anne Frank and what she went through, finally dying of starvation in the concentration camp,... More

Located in beautiful Julia Davis park. It's a lovely serene location with flowers, trees & water fountain. The monument is very touching as well as educational. It is well worth a visit. Would highly recommend.

This is a peaceful spot in a busy part of town. I especially love the outline of the Frank annex-- it really helps people understand the tight confines of their hiding place.

We came to the Memorial not knowing what to expect and were really moved by the quiet beauty of the park. I thought the hand crank tape recordings added a nice touch. It explained the purpose and history of the park. A must see if you are a visitor or native of the area

It is a pleasant place to pause and reflect on those who have advanced human rights issues. It is a quiet place near the library where one can relax.
