This outdoor slice of history is a Must See as the plaza neatly tucked between the lovely Boise River and the walking trail, provides insights on WW 2 from the perspective of a teenager Ann Frank. Next door is the Boise Library, Across the street is the Boise Art museum and the Idaho History Museum. Awesome!

The Idaho Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial is truly one of our most treasured monuments in all of Boise. The simple beauty of this memorial along with the poignant excerpts from The Diary of Anne Frank take your breath away. There is no way to describe the power of this monument, especially if you have the privilege of sharing this... More

The messages on the walls will make you think. The memorial is beautiful and worth seeing. There is no cost.

I try to walk over and view the memorial whenever I'm in Boise. Its so inspirational. This time I got to visit with my 15yo granddaughter who had read Ann Franks book last year in school. Its a great way to have meaningful discussions about what is happening in the world today. Thank you to all the many contributors.

Such a beautiful setting for reflecting on hope for a better world. Small waterfalls punctuate the thoughts of people from a myriad of backgrounds, cultures, religions. The blooms of the native vegetarians illuminate the hopes for human rights. I wish everyone could spend time here to build the sentiments city, nation and world-wide.

The Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial is a beautiful place along the Boise greenbelt to remember and ponder human rights. It is easily accessible from the greenbelt, the art museum or the library. It is appropriate for all ages and very interactive. I would recommend this to all.

Our family visited while walking along the Boise Greenbelt. Our teenage daughters were particularly moved by the quotes. It's a very peaceful, well-planned spot with landscaping that allows you to slow down and really think about human rights and values.

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...
