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.

This was truly a beautiful memorial. We went to the Holocaust Museum in DC on this same trip but found this memorial touching and done right. Take some time to read all the quotes and stories engraved in the stone and on the glass. It is in a truly nice area in Boston and not to be missed.

Have visited this memorial several times, most recently while chaperoning a school trip with young students. The gravity of the human loss brought on by the holocaust is overwhelming as you stand inside the glass paneled enclosures which contain etchings of the numbers assigned to those who were murdered during the Holocaust. A simple structure, the memorial is made up of several glass blocked enclosures located on a very busy downtown street, near city hall. The traffic and noise seem to disappear when one steps into this memorial. It is a simple but very moving memorial. Recommend visiting.

This was pretty amazing. I literally got choked up walking through the memorial. They have steam coming out which is supposed to symbolize what it was like it the gas chamber. Very sombering experience. I would recommend this to anyone, even if you're not intersted in history or the Holocaust.

Was walking around Boston and stumbled on this memorial. Wished it got more recognition than it deserves for something so moving and historic ... because I never would have thought that it was a memorial. I did like to read all the engravings of quotes but felt like it should have gotten more attention for such a large city.
