The Holocaust Memorial in Miami Beach was made with emotion and care. It's peaceful and beautiful, and architecturally thoughtful. The reason to visit is to walk down the center enclosure, hearing the singing voices of children, reading the names of the death camps, and to meet the desperation of a little girl at the end of the walk. Though the open center has no sound, the sculptures are screaming and crying and dying. Only a deaf soul couldn't hear them. Plan to spend up to an hour here as there are names, pictures and information etched in stone. It's only a couple of blocks away from the Lincoln Road Mall area and well worth the time. Bring tissues.

Very very good memorial, well thought out, great presentation, good progression of the start to end of the holocaust. Had fair knowledge of the atrocities but didn't realise the extent prior to the war & the numbers per country. The only downside, and I know I might get some stick for this so bear me out, was the fact that it intimated that the English & French declared war on Germany, only France & England assisted in the freedom of the Jews from the concentration camps. What about the men and women from the other countries which make up Great Britain who also fought for that freedom. England is only a part of Great Britain & I am sure that the families of those from Wales, Scotland & N.Ireland who fought in the war would be upset to find them airbrushed out of history. May be a minor point to some people but the facts need to be presented properly, especially in such an important memorial. British forces fought that war and it was a British Government that declared war.

Very well done - beautifully kept but it saddened me. Anyone visiting Miami should see this site - it might be harrowing but has to be done

This beautifully designed memorial is a very moving experience, and should not be missed. The serenity of the place is at odds with the subject, which makes it even more powerful.
