“Small but nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

I loved the art on the walls and inside. It made me sad because of course it is about the holocaust but it was inspirational.

“Difficult to watch but a must!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

Thats the hardest time I had in my Florida's tour. No matter how beautiful and tranquil everything was. When you come to the memorial and see the endless listing of names, the skeletons crying for help, something is broken in yourself.
A must see and understand. A picture is worth 1000 words. The memorial is, maybe, standing for a whole museum.

“Very moving. A must-see.”

This is a beautiful outdoor memorial that should not be missed. The sculpture of an arm and hand reaching up to the sky is 42 feet high and very impressive.

“A must to visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

Amazingly beautiful memorial, that touches everyones heart. The sculptures are very expressive, the walls of the walk behind the hand is covered with marble on which the names of some of the victims are written.

“A Must-See in Miami Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

The Holocaust Memorial it not what you typically think of when visiting Miami Beach. But when you've gotten a feel for the beach and the restaurants and the shopping miles and want to add something substantial to your agenda, go and see this impressive and moving sight. When approaching the space of the main sculpture, the hand reaching out to the sky, you pass through a hallway in which displays information and photos of the terrors of the Nazi regime. The inner circle, in which a huge hand reaches toward the sky and real size human sculptures depict the desperation of those who suffered and died under the Nazis, will touch your heard and soul. Still, this monument also expresses hope. There is music, there are flowers, there are Anne Frank's quotes, which talk about the goodness in people. I take almost all my friends and family, who come to visit me in Miami, there and everybody left the place deeply impressed. The Holocaust Memorial is a must-see in Miami Beach, which by the way is home to a large Jewish community.
