A dramatic memorial juxtaposed with Boston’s busy streets, restaurants, traffic, and (when I visited) construction.

Imagine standing inside a tight glass tower inscribed with millions of numbers tatooed on holocaust victims, with gas-like mist surrounding you, coming from vents under your feet. You are also standing over ember-like lights reminiscent of the ovens. You escape, only to find yourself in another tower. The experience is very powerful, haunting unforgettable. If you feel uncomfortable and want to leave, it's OK, this is exactly what this monument is meant to be. But first you must go there. Free, always open.

My daughter and I stumbled across the Holocaust Memorial while visiting Boston. The memorial is composed of glass "stalls" which have steam rising up inside them. Each stall has a story as told by a Holocaust survivor engraved on the glass walls of the stall. The stories are touching, and are a great way for an adult to teach a youngster what can happen when hate dominates a person's way of thinking. I'm glad my daughter and I stumbled across this un-heralded "jewel" in Boston.

The New England Holocaust Memorial is along the freedom trail and well worth the visit. Very sad and thought provoking. Take a few mins just to read a few quotes or names of the dead.

I was doing fine until I read the inscription about the girl who had found a berry and carried it around on a leaf all day so she could give it to her friend. At that point I was a crying mess. Although it's not a particularly long way through the memorial, it packs an emotional punch.
