“Well done and worthwhile memorial.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

This memorial was very well done and worthwhile. The art work was well done as well. Such a sad time in our collective history. I am pleased my children were able to see this and make somewhat real what they've only read about previously.

“A Moving Memorial.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

This is an impressive memorial that gives you a window into what occurred in a very factual manner. It is oddly a very peaceful place considering the events at issue.

“Not sure when I would visit ?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Like the memorial in Washington and NYC and Israel these memorials remind us of a of terrible time and humanity at it's worst. Not sure what part of a vacation to south Florida that fit's in BUT many visiting South Miami might not understand exactly what happened to Jews before the end of WWII and this is a reminder they will not forget, Probably not for younger visitors.

“Sad and heartbreaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Although it was sad and it was honestly heartbreaking, I learned a lot that I had forgotten through school, even learned things I didn't know. Must go! However, go when you aren't having a good day, it is quite a downer on the rest of the day.
