Its a nice park and little creepy with things scattered on the ground which represents the tragic lost and survival of the people involved in the Holocust. A day to reflect and remember.

Very beautiful park. Small, but peaceful and powerful exhibit. Also enjoyed the Vietnam War Memorial in the park as well.

This beautiful memorial is hidden away so be sure to map or GPS it. Very quiet and humbling. Small but powerful in its message

This is a beautiful memorial. I have visited Holocaust sites around the world, including many camps, and this was very surprising and impressive. The quotes were heart wrenching and the story was wonderfully written. It was wonderful to see a team of volunteers pitching in to do maintenance and ground work all around the area. The crew of 2 dozen... More

Very moving memorial in a tranquil setting. The design is well thought out. Sobering experience but ok for the kids over seven or so.
