I have been to Auschwitz in Poland. The memorial captured the feelings I had then and is architecturally interesting.

This short walk through several glass-enclosed panels depicting different concentration camps captures your concentration. Each panel has steam rising up around you. There is a memorial as well.

Everything about the holocaust is a sobering experience that we should never forget what evil can be done by individuals.

I live in Boston and walk through this when I am walking to Haymarket or the North End. It never fails to move me and reminds me of the terrible things that mankind does to mankind.

Representing those perished in concentrating camps on polish territory. Too bad doesn't include other nationalities besides Jews but looks like anyone else try to go forward with the time. Very touching inscription on the marble next to glass memorial.

This one we just stumbeled upon by accident during our visit in Boston. We saw it from distance and got curious. It truly is a wonderful memorial that takes your breath away and the tribute to the victims is of course well worth the visit.

The heavy snow made the memorial all the more impressive and memorable. The simplicity of design makes this a very special place.

This memorial gives you chills. You enter the memorial and you don't realize what you are seeing until you really looks closely. The number of people who died but Holocaust are numbered not by names and when you are inside of the glass you see all the numbers and it is very shocking when you realize that is each human...
