This is one of the most moving memorials I have seen honoring the victims and heroes of the holocaust. From the prisoners numbers at each camp "station" to the steamy mist that rises, it sets the mood for the memorial and reminds us all to never let this happen again.

I though this was just a visual memorial, but you can actually walk through the glass columns. And along they way they have quotes, stories, and explanations. You can stop here after Faniuel Hall or Union Oyster house or on the way to the North End! Really neat at night!!!

As someone who is not always so up to speed on the details of history, this was one of those places that will absolutely move you. It is amazing as you walk along reading facts and details at the silence that falls over you. For me, there was silent reflection and sadness. I am neither Jewish, nor German, and it... More

I stumbled across this accidentally and was very moved by what I read. It's vital we remember what happened and to read quotes by survivors impressed on me the horrors of what happened without leaving and feeling horrible, if that makes sense. It's very well done and worth a quick visit.

This is a really moving, spectacular way to bring the horror of the Holocaust to life. I've visited the Memorial several times and still get chills.

You would be hard pushed not to get choked with emotion as you walk through the Holocaust Memorial in Boston. The testimonials which are engraved tell tales from those who survived and those who were involved in the liberation. You walk through the centre of each of the 6 towers, and as you look up, you will see six million... More
