I have seen these towers many times while visiting family who work near here. While the experience of walking through these towers and appreciating what they mean is moving and makes you realize the severity of the crimes committed, the towers themselves are often underappreciated...More

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...More

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.

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
