This memorial is so very well done it is a very moving and thoughtful tribute to all those who tragically had their lives taken from them. It really makes you think and feel walking through it. Such a clever concept. The most frightening realisation is the small printed numbers on the Perspex of each tower relate to the numbers tattooed... More

This was a must for me to see & it is very moving. Read about it before you go so you know how it represents the concentration camps. Very well done.

A moving memorial. A must if you are in Boston, even in the cold weather, especially in the cold. Take the time to walk through each piece and read everything.

A very touching tribute to the many individuals that lost their lives during this horrible time. It really made me grateful for the freedom that we enjoy and how easily it could be taken away.

Very moving memorial to the holocaust. It is made up of square glass towers which at first look opaque, it is only when you get closer that you realize that the opaqueness is caused by all the prisoner serial numbers etched into the glass.

This a great memorial to those who tragically lost their lives in the Holocaust. The experience was sobering. There isn't much to add but I'd recommend going here.

We saw this monument around sunset and it was stunning, the visual representation of the lives lost was incredibly moving. I would definitely recommend this.

This beautiful memorial is a place to remember and reflect. Cleverly designed - you walk through the beautiful glass panels with steam blowing, reading row upon row of numbers etched on the panels, quotations from survivors it really is thought provoking and a reminder of the inhumanity of mankind and also the strength of mankind to survive and forgive!

This was an extremely moving memorial to those who died in the holocaust. Just looking at the details contained on each of the 'pillars' evoked an emotional response and is a reminder of the time

I would definitely walk through this memorial. They have quotes that break your heart. One in particular was a woman whose friend had found a raspberry at the camp they were at. She brought it to her, and presented it on a leaf. Imagining a raspberry being your sole possession on the planet, and offering it to a friend. Would... More
