A simple monument, yet so touching. Each tower represents a concentration camp and has on its walls the identity number of the deported prisoners as well as quotes form writers and prisoners. A place that makes you reflect

This Memorial is very small its tall glasses with names on it, its open and very small. there is not much to see except names. I think it should have had a better lay-out most people walk thru it to hide from the rain, its never busy

You have to admire the designer of this memorial. Take time to visit and read the inscriptions. Put it on your list to visit in Boston.

The memorial is simple in concept but powerful in it's delivery. You walk through glass pillars representing the different concentration camps. The pillars have numbers that were assigned to the prisoners of the camp.

A really nice memorial. Thoughtfully laid out and all the names of the victims written on the glass panels. It was really interesting and moving reading the personal accounts of the victims.

We went through this while we were walking across town. Lots of inspirational quotes and sad accounts of the Holocaust - it doesn't take long to walk through, so don't miss!

We visited many of Boston's finest attractions which celebrate the freedom that exists in our country. I am so glad we put this small memorial on our list. Read all of the passages on the towers and on the stone walkway, and you will be reminded of the incomprehensible terror that can occur when freedom is taken away.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
