“very emotional experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

we made this one of our points of interest on our trip to Miami Beach and found it very emotional and beautiful.. I can recommend it to anyone no matter age or creed as it is beautifully done and very tranquil and serves as an extremely poignant reminder of what can happen when a lunatic is allowed to run amoc unchecked...sadly, reminded me also of the many similar instances of ethnic cleansing which are still going on today and to which the world turns a blind eye.. never again should be the message

“Accidental find, very nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

We were returning our rental car and drove past this after a wrong turn. It looked really cool so when we rented bikes the next day, we made it a point to find it. It was worth the trip. Great pictures. Nice memorial.

“A must see for Jews and non Jews.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

This Holocaust memorial is done in the perfect mixture of respect and emotions yet able to the story of the Holocaust. Go and spend some time there, it's important for all of us.

“Very Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Didn't really know much about what happened, but this memorial was very......eye opening. We were not able to take photos out of respect and request of the owners. But I would recommend visiting this exhibit. It is very impactful.

“A very special and extraordinay experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

Incredible time in our history depicted with great realism and compassion.
What I disliked, is that everything they show and tell us actually occurred.
