Monument
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.
