Walking distance of Ocean drive. Touching even if you have no affiliation. A nice walk anyway. You will be able to walk along Lincoln road to reach it.

This memorial is an incredible piece of art. Some take issue with the information presented, but instead of reading every plaque this place is best taken in as a art experience.
Take time to stand on the platforms at the edge of the reflecting pool. The artist designed the reflection for a reason. Is the hand reaching to us? to God? to help? to beg? to reach? to lift? to climb? Intense and amazing.
However, it's serious. (Obviously) the subject is an outrage, heartbreak and tragedy but many visiting South Beach aren't prepared for such reality.

But according to this place that's the case.

Either intentionally or unintentionally I don't know, but they left out an important part: not only Jewish people were subjected to the horrors of the Holocaust!

I hate to leave a bad review for subject matter such as this, but if they ignore basic history you're better off skipping it.

We did not know what to expect when we read about this, but we're very glad we stopped to see it when we were in Miami. It is powerful and memorable and perhaps the most impressive monument I have ever seen.

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.
