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

This was a let down from all of the other Holocaust Memorials that we have seen. However, we were also surprised to stumble upon the Memorial when we were parking the car. It will take about 5 minutes to view and will not be out of your way during an Inner Harbor visit.
