Owner description: The six glass towers of this striking memorial serve to represent the six million Jews who perished in the Holocaust, six main Nazi death camps and the candles on a menorah.

Having been to Auschwitz and Birkenau ten years ago, I felt a greater appreciation for this memorial than my friends who were with me. It's quite modern, but very touching.

The true enormity of the Holocaust is depicted here with these large glass towers engraved with the many hundreds of thousands of prisoner numbers, I would not believe it if you do not shed a tear after visiting this.

You will feel quite sad as you walk through the tribute to those who perished during the Holocaust. It is lit up at night and actually has a pretty look to it, while being quite eerie at the same time. Take a moment (it takes just a few minutes) to walk through it and remember those who lost their lives in such a horrific way.

The Holocaust Memorial in Boston is worth a look, if for no other reason than a reminder what hate and prejudice can cause. The Memorial consists of six glass pillars with the serial numbers of those sent to the concentration camps engraved on them. Each pillar has a million numbers on it, reflecting the total number who perished. At the entry to the memorial, there is a quote attributed to Martin Niemöller, about the inaction of people who were not part of the targetted groups (commonly known as "First they came..."). You then walk underneath the pillars and can read quotes of those who survived and what they saw. It is very moving, yet simple.

I recommend people check it out as a way of remembering what can happen if we only focus on the differences between us, not our common nature.

To be honest I found thise be very depressing, it added nothing to the city of Boston - nothing more to be said
