New England Holocaust Memorial, Boston

4.6
#6 of 172 in Museums in Massachusetts
Monument History Museum
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.

  • Beautiful and meaningful memorial. You can see it from far away and recognize its glass structure. Names are carved in the metal.
  • Meaningful and powerful to walk through.
  • Beautiful piece.
  • Everyone should stop by just once to pay their respects
  • Beautiful and respectful tribute to the people who suffered the Holocaust. The smoke is an eerie reminder of the ovens where humans where burned.
