I'd seen some of the other reviews, but I thought this memorial was very well done. It took me a minute to realize it emulated train box cars and what the view would have been of someone inside the box car.

Any Holocaust museum, memorial, statue, etc., will be humbling and sad, and this one is as well. I highly recommend going to see it. Well worth fitting into your trip.

Anytime something about the Holocaust comes up it brings chills up your spine. Memorials like this one bring that reality back, even to those born years after WWII. The purpose of a memorial is to remind us of what mankind is capable of and to ensure that acts like this are never allowed to happen again. The statue of people... More

Easily overseen, this small spot in Downtown Baltimore reminds you of the Holocaust. Only on second view, you might realize the railroad tracks on the ground, symbolizing the tracks on which Jewish prisoners have been brought to Auschwitz ...

This concrete wall sits right on Baltimore Street, very walkable from the Inner Harbour, moving statue depicting the victims of this horrific time in history, definitely worth a look.

This place provides a great reminder of how far we have come over the years. It also reminds us what we should never repeat again. The only down side is having to PARK at a distance and then walk to see the exhibit. It iS definitely worth the money, and if you are lucky, you may be able to meet... More

We came upon the memorial as we were walking in Baltimore. It was tremendously moving me...depicting the railroad tracks and the rail cars that carried so many innocents to their deaths. The sculpture is haunting and the area is stark to remind us of the horrible experience these people went through. My friend said "Kaddish" for the unknown members of... More

The memorial is ok. I came here and visited it as a tourist before I moved to baltimore and was disappointed. It's an ok way to fill a little time when sight seeing downtown but I wouldn't set it as an individual destination.

I discovered this monument accidentally while on way to inner harbor for lunch. It was worth its while to spend about 10 minutes there and see this reminder of the dark times when millions of people were done to death because they happened to be of a particular faith. The memorial needs improvement in upkeep. Overall I am happy I... More

I'm a Catholic, my girlfriend and I came across the memorial on our way to Annapolis. It was on the corner and we decided to stop on our way back. It was at first very heart moving, the train tracks, the gates, the burning humans in the sculpture with a fountain and lights. Not so pretty when you get out... More
