a tasteful and moving memorial, but not the most clearly signmarked--the first several times i walked past it i didn't realize what it was at all. this leads to people just kind of wandering through without respecting the memorial for what it is, which can be jarring.

As a monument in honor of the holocaust victims, this well-designed monument is very classy and sophisticated. The impact of all the identifying numbers is moving...simple clean lines.

This is a monument you could easily walk by and miss, but it's worth a visit. I used to walk by it every day on my way to work and tried to make it a point to walk through once in a while. It's hard to describe, as I'm sure everyone has their own unique response. You could easily walk... More

We almost walked past this whilst doing the freedom trail, so glad we stopped to look, it was absolutely inspiring. Please stop and read every one of the verses on each of the glass panels. I was so touched by this memorial.

Everyone should go see this memorial or one like it once they are old enough to fully comprehend what happened in the Holocaust. It's important to face the worst humanity is capable of so that we can prevent it from ever happening again.

This is a beautiful piece to symbolize this horrible tragedy. A simple walk through the memorial is short but very moving and was done with care.

This landmark came as a surprise to us. We hadn't heard of it. I found it to be artistic and tasteful and somehow hopeful. Very spiritual.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
