“Sobering Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

It only takes a few minutes to experience the reminder of a difficult time in the history of the world. The wall is reminiscent of the Viet Nam Memorial in DC. Visit this free memorial and you will never forget it.

“moving”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

Very moving, spend time here and look at all the photographs, better still go round with one of the guides.Everyone who comes to Miami should visit so we don't forget. Miami has the most holocaust survivors in the USA they are true survivors.

“Informative and peaceful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

My wife and I went to the memorial and found it to be very informative. Most people know of what happened but this cast a personal light onto history. It was very moving and very respectful. Jewish or not it is hard to stand in the shadow of the hand and not feel something.

“An amazing place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

This is so much more than a memorial, it is a total experience. We expected to be there for about 15 minutes and stayed for an hour, A humbling, chilling experience. Not to be missed.

“Humbling experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

The memorial brought me to verge of tears as I read the history of the events and the photographs etched on the granite tombstones. It is hard to believe the cruelty of the perpetrators, and the apathy of the world that witnessed the destruction and desecration of human life. Perhaps if more people experience the memorial, there may be less chance of it recurring, and holocaust deniers may have a harder time in convincing others that the holocaust did not happen
