The Oregon Holocaust Memorial is a dignified reminder of the horrors Jewish people endured at the hands of the Nazis. The littered detritus of a forcibly displaced people line the walkway to the memorial which tells the story of the Holocaust. Underneath are buried the...More

This was not part of our plan when visiting Washington Park (we had no idea the memorial was even there!), but after visiting the Rose Garden happened to walk past on our way out of the park. We have seen other memorials in large cities,...More

The Holocaust Memorial has a lot more substance to it than you would expect by looking at it. It is inscribed with a detailed narrative of the history of the Holocaust, and the rear of the Memorial has many shocking and poignant quotes from survivors...More

We visited the rose garden and then went to this memorial as my husband is very interested in war history. There is a lot of reading though completely worth it - it's a very humbling memorial. There is a lot of information that we didn't...More

This is a small memorial in Washington Park but well worth the visit. It lists the names of local persons affected by the Holocaust together with family members they lost. Some people lost their entire families, and it was very sobering to see the long...More

Although the sight is difficult to find, it's worth the effort. The words engraved here are moving and offer an insight into the thoughts of people who had to face the worst moments in history at a very young age.

In an unlikely location, next to the rose garden don't forget to visit the Holocaust memorial, a tribute to those who lost their lives.

Hey-O! Flying in to PDX at 8:30am and flying out at 9:30pm on Wednesday, August 26th. My partner and I have never been and we're renting a car....we're vegans, like to hike, eat and explore all the little quirks of a city.
