In my opinion, no trip to South Beach would be complete without a visit to this memorial. I truly believe that we must see what mistakes we have made in the past so that we will not do them again. Unfortunately, this happens in our present day world..only with different people. Maybe more people should visit this memorial... I found this memorial to be very informative...with the pictures, names of all that died, statues, monuments ...so much to learn. I especially found the middle monument with the hand rising up and people in agony to be beyond words. With the music playing in he background, it really brought home the suffering that so many people suffered during this time. It is hard to believe that all that suffering went on yet so many countries decided not to do anything to help them... So many generations wiped out because of a hatred toward a group of people..... Why can we not learn from this.....

This memorial was very well done and worthwhile. The art work was well done as well. Such a sad time in our collective history. I am pleased my children were able to see this and make somewhat real what they've only read about previously.

This is an impressive memorial that gives you a window into what occurred in a very factual manner. It is oddly a very peaceful place considering the events at issue.

Like the memorial in Washington and NYC and Israel these memorials remind us of a of terrible time and humanity at it's worst. Not sure what part of a vacation to south Florida that fit's in BUT many visiting South Miami might not understand exactly what happened to Jews before the end of WWII and this is a reminder they will not forget, Probably not for younger visitors.
