Right in the heart of Boston is this tribute to the Holocaust. The glass buildings have the numbers of the people who died in the Holocaust. Very moving.

We are always moved by this memorial. The path, the steam, the monuments, and the glass columns are a such a touching tribute to what so many had to endure and experience.

Nice memorial, but why is this planted right in the center of the historic Boston? I came to Boston to learn about the American revolution. What does the historic Boston have to do with the holocaust? This thing is literally planted right on the freedom trail looming right in front of the historic taverns the founding fathers frequented. Not only do the glass pillars not at all fit in with the surrounding aesthetic of historic Boston but it also does a disservice to the memorial itself as people are having a blast and drinking at the historic bars which this thing is planted right in front of. As you’re trying to read the plaques, you have live bar music and drunken shouts in the background and people squeezing by who are going about their daily business because this is planted in such an unthoughtful invasive location. I just don’t know why anybody felt this was a good spot. Ruins both the memorial and Boston’s historic area.

To see the numbers printed on these towers and the steam rising inside is a humbling and moving experience. It is a beautiful tribute to people who died in a horrible event.

We should never forget and this brings it directly into your senses by the use of numbers and steam.
