A really tiny yet meaningful memorial

A really tiny yet meaningful memorial. It's pretty from far away, I walk through this several times without knowing its significance.

The entire concept of this memorial is wonderful. Location is central. So many people pass by and cannot miss this memorial. The texts and citation are strong emotional.

The Holocaust Memorial is right by Faneuil Hall. Each tower represents a camp and has quotes from survivors and is inscribed with the tattoo numbers of the victims. It is staggering how many numbers are on each tower. It is a very powerful place to visit.

A touching place in the heart of the city not to forget what happened during the 2nd world war. Walking through these glass columns I kept on thinking about it.

I honestly wonder if there is a major city in the u.s. without a holocaust mémorial, and if you've seen one, you've pretty much seen them all. This one seems quite out of place being in Boston...but there you have it... .. There seem to be more holocaust memorials than memorials for american boys that were killed in the same... More

I'm not sure that words can adequately describe what this memorial is or the impact it has on those who visit it. I was humbled, saddened, horrified, and inspired all at the same time. I along with a co-worker stumbled across this memorial as we wandered through Boston one evening coming back from dinner. I was speechless.as we slowly made... More

This is very poignant. Especially when you see all the numbers printed on each of the glass sections. It really puts the Holocaust into context, more than any other museum I went to.

Witnesses and survivors stories etched here both heartbreaking and sickening but everyone should be made aware of these atrocities that took place during those dark and barbaric times in the hope that nothing like this will ever happen again in our so called civilised societies.
