I was walking along the freedom train and looked over to see these glass towers. I walked over to see them and was glad I did. I thought this was a well thought out memorial. I thought the presentation was good, there was a lot of information but you didn't feel overwhelmed by it. I was really glad I took... More

We were drawn to the Memorial by the sunlight around it. Very quiet and reverent. Powerful. Returned again to view.

I have never seen a holocaust memorial as impressive as this one. Walking the little path, reading the sayings, sawing the numbers etc. made me feel the importance to remember.

This place tore at my emotions. My wife and I were both moved to tears reading the inscriptions as you walked through the steam filled chimney's of this free outdoor monument. Seriously one of the most moving monuments I have ever seen.

This is a short stop in the center of town so you have no exscuse not to visit. It is really thought provoking and a reminder of what must never happen again.

We happened to stop here during our walk on the Freedom Trail even though it was not on our list of things to see. I'm glad we stopped. It was very moving and well done.

This memorial is near Faneuil Hall and the Union Oyster House. The modern glass towers are engraved with numbers relating to the numbers tattooed upon the concentration camp prisoners.
