While on a walking tour we visited this unique memorial. It has all the names of those who dies in the Holocaust. There is even steam coming out of the ground to simulate the gas in the gas chambers. Very moving.
We were following a self-guided walking tour of Boston and spotted this on the list of unmissable sites. This is a free memorial (which can be seen if you're following the Freedom Trail), comprising a series of glass towers, etched with digits recalling the registration...More
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.
Beautiful memorial. It is in a very dense busy area of town. Parking would be impossible so I would recommend taking the subway. While you are there take the opportunity to see the other historical things close by: Faneuil Hall, Union Oyster house (Boston's oldest...More
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
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
your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
