We came upon the memorial as we were walking in Baltimore. It was tremendously moving me...depicting the railroad tracks and the rail cars that carried so many innocents to their deaths. The sculpture is haunting and the area is stark to remind us of the horrible experience these people went through. My friend said "Kaddish" for the unknown members of... More

The memorial is ok. I came here and visited it as a tourist before I moved to baltimore and was disappointed. It's an ok way to fill a little time when sight seeing downtown but I wouldn't set it as an individual destination.

I discovered this monument accidentally while on way to inner harbor for lunch. It was worth its while to spend about 10 minutes there and see this reminder of the dark times when millions of people were done to death because they happened to be of a particular faith. The memorial needs improvement in upkeep. Overall I am happy I... More

I'm a Catholic, my girlfriend and I came across the memorial on our way to Annapolis. It was on the corner and we decided to stop on our way back. It was at first very heart moving, the train tracks, the gates, the burning humans in the sculpture with a fountain and lights. Not so pretty when you get out... More

Walking back to hotel from inner harbor... What a sobering reminder of just how fragile we really are. Pray for the peace of Israel.

The Holocaust Memorial is only a few blocks north from the Inner Harbour. Make a point of walking to it. It is moving. Take the time to read the encryptions; take in the scene of rail lines. Very moving.

It is a square, that's all. There are some sculptures and train rails, which have some meaning in the way they are positioned, of course. It is a nice place to spend 30 minutes, 45 top? I enjoyed going to this place.

The only negative is there is no parking there to see it. You must park elsewhere and walk to it. Regardless, it is a good reminder of not reliving the past!

The sculpture at the entrance is riveting - the tiny pond surrounding the sculpture needs maintenance - the memorial depicts one scene that tells the visitor much about the horrors visited upon the Jewish people during the nazi period.

I just happened to walk by the memorial on the way back to my hotel. The memorial is located on a corner street and is of a simple, humble design. There is a sculpture on one end, followed by an open area with rows that resembled rows of barracks found in a concentration camp. At the end of the memorial... More
