Categories: Monuments, History Museums, Museums, Tourist Spots
Just steps from Boston's Freedom Trail, New England Holocaust Memorial, created by survivors, serves as a sobering monument to the 6 million Jews killed between 1939 and 1945. The memorial is made up of six identical paneled glass towers, each representing a million of the dead; in addition, they pay homage to those killed at each of six major Nazi death camps during the period. You'll see that each tower is inscribed with different numbers, as well as quotes from camp survivors and messages about the nature of evil, history, and remembrance. You can wander the area yourself, but if you'd like a guided tour, arrange for one ahead of time through the memorial's website.

This is a remarkable monument along the Freedom Trail to those who died during the genocide of the second World War. Six tall columns etched with the numbers of those murdered. Walking through it is a somber experience with stories and quotes from those who lived and survived it.

Amazing memorial for the holocaust victims, very moving and a must see! How blessed we are!
a great memorial for the holocaust victims. kinda eerie that instead of names they put the number of each of the prisoners that were tattoo'd on their arms. visit on a cold april night, made me really reflect on the place and the people that suffered under the germans during WWII
A very peaceful and respectful area. Easy to find and view while walking around
