“Not only Jews were in the Holocaust...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

But according to this place that's the case.

Either intentionally or unintentionally I don't know, but they left out an important part: not only Jewish people were subjected to the horrors of the Holocaust!

I hate to leave a bad review for subject matter such as this, but if they ignore basic history you're better off skipping it.

“Heart wrenching visit, but well worth it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We did not know what to expect when we read about this, but we're very glad we stopped to see it when we were in Miami. It is powerful and memorable and perhaps the most impressive monument I have ever seen.

“Sobering Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

It only takes a few minutes to experience the reminder of a difficult time in the history of the world. The wall is reminiscent of the Viet Nam Memorial in DC. Visit this free memorial and you will never forget it.

“moving”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Very moving, spend time here and look at all the photographs, better still go round with one of the guides.Everyone who comes to Miami should visit so we don't forget. Miami has the most holocaust survivors in the USA they are true survivors.

“Informative and peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I went to the memorial and found it to be very informative. Most people know of what happened but this cast a personal light onto history. It was very moving and very respectful. Jewish or not it is hard to stand in the shadow of the hand and not feel something.
