Every time we have out of town guests, we ride our bikes downtown on the greenbelt and always make a stop and reflect at this memorial. The stone carved quotations from various people are very eloquent and thought provoking. The water feature adds a sense of calm midst the turbulent times in human history. This past weekend, we drove our... More

A lovely, peaceful and gently transformative experience awaits those who leisurely stroll through this lovely garden, fountains and monument to the human spirit. Come relaxed and receptive and you'll be rewarded with what I found to be a refreshing balm to the soul. Worth your time, but don't come all rushed and resentful. Be open to letting the place work...

I feel happy and grateful to see people whizzing by on the Greenbelt in light of some of the other events people everywhere have had to live through. The... More

This place has quiet gardens and water features, plus walls with quotes from many people involved with the history of human bad behavior to others, not least the Holocaust which ultimately consumed Anne Frank. But the wall also recognizes the history of American enslavement of Africans, and our World War II internment of Americans of Japanese descent. The place is... More

I was walking along the greenbelt and just happened to stumble on the memorial. It's a nice tribute to Anne Frank and to human rights, in general.

Of course you simply cannot read these words on the walls and not feel inspired to be a better person! The grounds are gorgeous and uplifting, too.

Adjacent to the Greenbelt trail, near the Art Museum, this beautiful memorial is situated so anyone can embrace it at any time. With plaques and sculpture, easy to read with important quotes and information in a "whimsical" sort of lilt to it. I appreciate, I send Oms, I will never forget her and the others.

The Memorial is right off the Boise River Greenbelt, so easy to visit. When I first saw it I was moved by how tragic a loss Anne Frank was to all peoples. The horrors of war and persecution should NEVER be forgotten... so that we don't fall victim to it again.

Ran across this memorial along the Boise River greenbelt path. My wife & I ended up spending a 1/2 hour looking over the readings along the yellow sandstone walls, some of Anne Frank.
