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.

The memorial is beautifully simple. It's made of glass columns (that are lit up at night), right across from Fenuil Square, and has the names of hundreds of Holocaust victims etched into the glass panels. It also has a brief history of the concentration camps represented.

If you pass the New England Holocaust Museum, make sure you stop and visit this poignant memorial. The five chimneys represent concentration camps and the memorial includes first-hand accounts of the stories from survivors. It includes some truly thought provoking quotes.

It was really a neat experience to see this Holocaust Memorial. The names go on and on. Bring a camera you will want to capture this.

Don't pass by this memorial without stopping to walk through it and reading the quotes from Holocaust survivors and servicemen. It is an extremely moving experience and takes about 10 to 15 minutes to walk through it. It is free.

A bit out of place, juxtaposed with the loud cheering outside Fanuiel Square, this memorial is a powerful and respectful memorial of the holocaust. The minimalist approach works well to keep the focus on its message. While painful, I recommend reading each of the quotes along the way and notice the number of prisoner numbers inscribed on the glass... incredibly moving.
