“Moving and necessary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

This is a necessity for all visitors. It's important to stop and pause and contemplate the reality of WWII and attempted genocide. It is very beautifully appropriate.

“touching”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

we wouldn't expect to be so touched visiting this memorial. just for a chance we visited it after watching a movie about that sad period and this made us understand it even more. you can easily reach it on foot from lincoln road. very recomended cos we have never to forget what happened!

“Wasn't prepared for the impact”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Photos don't do this justice. Art+architecture+creativity=powerful impact. Amazing. Just realize you're going to leave in a somber, reflective mood.

“A Worthwhile Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

The Memorial was done very well. A history with photographs provides a solid introduction. The sculptures and the walls with the names of victims of the Holocaust were tastefully done. the benches and arbors with greenery provide a somber mood and time for reflection.

“Always emotional”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

It is difficult to see these images but that is the point. Sculpture is so touching and photos will share this awful time in history to younger audience. Well planned layout as the viewer winds around the walk viewing all the facts and photos.
