Owner description: The six glass towers of this striking memorial serve to represent the six million Jews who perished in the Holocaust, six main Nazi death camps and the candles on a menorah.

I always am sure to walk through this outside memorial when I come into the city from north station...it feels very poignient as hot air rushes past you as you gaze up at all those names...its really a superb piece.

The Memorial features six glass towers. Each one has the name of one of the 6 main death camps on the ground below it. When you walk through smoke rises from below. There are quotes that you can also read. I read on one of the websites that the design was rich in metaphor. That being the six towers recall the six main death camps, the six million Jews who died, or a menorah of memorial candles.

The memorial is quite moving and only takes a few minutes to see. My husband and I walk through the memorial every time we visit that part of Boston. It is outside the Haymarket Square T-Station, across from City Hall Plaza and near Faneuil Hall.

You can take a closer look or neat to just look at from a distance. Overwhelming if you really dwell on it. Another part of history to think about the impact.

Close to Boston Market, an incredible monument to the victims of the Holocaust. The monument is comprised of multiple glass towers with the words of different Holocaust survivors etched into the glass. The words are raw human emotions and immediately connect you with the person, the complete opposite of what the Holocaust was attempting to do. Multiple towers give the impression of guard towers in a camp and combined with steam rising from the ground create the sensation of a crematorium nearby.

Very well done monument to help us remember what happened during World War II.
