I enjoy every Holocaust memorial I go to. This one was personal because it mentioned lots of families that live in Portland that are Jewish descendants-very thoughtful. It's just a nice walk within the park. I recommend stopping and reading what it has to say-about...More

The memorial is a emotional remembrance to local Jewish families that lost members to the holocaust.

This is located in a very beautiful spot, and it is such an important memorial. It was quiet when we were there and a perfect place for reflection...

You may just happen to come across this somber but beautiful monument during a stroll through Washington Park, as we did, but it would be worth a short visit on its own. This is a memorial, not a museum, so I take issue with the...More
