6 glass towers rising high overhead, each etched with the “serial numbers” of all those who were murdered at that particular concentration camp. Millions of numbers, no names. It was so moving, eerie and inspiring, all at the same time. Memorable and worth seeing.

This small but important art work is a must see if you are visiting the area. This is a monument with few explanations however its striking and I give credit to the City for erecting it.

This was simply discovered on a walk from one destination to another. It is beautiful, respectful, and quiet. One comes away from it remembering some world history rather than just American history. It's a very apropos place to be at the North End of Boston...More

We were surprised by how much this fairly small memorial made such an impression on our group. We talked about it just the other day. It only takes a short visit, but leaves a lasting memory.

We were headed to dinner and noticed steam rising out of a sculpture, so we went over for a closer look. I was enveloped in the steam rising from grates in the ground before I realized what it was that I was looking at. Chilling...More

At first glance, the memorial looks simple and even sparse. But then one notices the names etched on the glass towers. Innumerable names of those who were murdered in the Holocaust. This is an experience one does not easily forget.

Very small but powerful memorial. Liked the steam/smoke effect while walking thought the structures. You should definitely walk by and take a moment to read everything.

Found this on a whim and never expected it. Extremely well displayed and a very touching. Went to it before it was partially destroyed by a .... hope to go again. Found it walking around the trail.

This was well designed and can be a very moving experience. You have to be vigilant and look up, down and to the sides. There is a lot listed as you walk through the glass "camps"

We were walking back to our hotel after dinner, and came across this memorial. The design is stunning, seeing it after dark. I was making my way through as I read the plaques and monuments. Given the strange things happening with our current president rounding...More
