I hadn't really thought of Baltimore as a place likely to have a Holocaust Memorial as was quite taken at how simple and poignant it is. A Flat open space with a wall at the back with simple quotes that sum up the horror of it all. In the ground are representations of the railroad tracks that carried millions to... More

We saw the Holocaust Museum yesterday and happened to see there's a Holocaust Memorial in Baltimore. The sculpture is powerful as well as the quotes. I am glad we stopped. Even though it is located in a strange part of town it was still worth seeing.

This is a nearly vacant lot in the downtown of the city's business district. A couple lengths of rail tracks from and to nowhere, and s wall. Minimalist space representing tracks to an interment camp from WW2.

Hidden away with almost no signage only 2 blocks from the Inner Harbour is a touching memorial to the Holocaust. Representing the cattle trucks used to transport the Jews to the camps sitting amongst other train tracks, it conjures up terrible imagery. Combined with an eternal flame made up of dying bodies it is a powerful message of what could... More

Attractions such as these are difficult to rate because of the type of attraction that they are. This is easy to find within close walking distance of the harbour and city centre, and yet is surprisingly secluded and quiet. Unlike some older reviews we found the site to be relatively clean with little trash to be seen. It is well... More

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 ...
