We came across this memorial walking along the Freedom Trail. The moment I saw it, I knew what it was, as I had read about this memorial while planning our road trip. Reading about it and seeing pictures don't do it justice. The thought that...More

THis display is very emotional and gives perspective to the thousands of lives lost during this tragic time. It does not take long to go through and read all the important messages. Young children would benefit fro always hearing about these events.

This is a good way for us to remember the tragedy that took place in our world. It sheds a light on how you should stand up if someone is doing something wrong. Never think that it is not your problem when another human life...More

Striking memorial to the crimes of the Nazi regime during WWII. It's small and free, great though for even a short amount of time of contemplation. The only downside is that it is small, so can easily be crowded by a large group of people.

There are many ways to experience this free standing exhibit. Some people just pass through, others take the time to take in the powerful message of this memorial. It is definitely worth visiting, especially if you are touring the Freedom Trail.

I think the memorial is lovely and unique and I have visited other Holocaust memorials in 6 other major cities as well. What I find unfortunate about this memorial is the location. It is a very busy street where there is a mix of people...More

A very memorable place, cleverly designed, to remember the WW2 holocaust. we walked through on a rainy day, which made it look and feel even more tragic.

This memorial is so well done. From the steam to the concentration camp prisoner numbers etched in each tower's glass to the quotes....it is a powerful walk. We must never forget. This monument is right along the Freedom Trail si it is easy to find.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
