New England Holocaust Memorial, Boston
(4.6/5 based on 1,700+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • A very moving memorial. It is worth visiting and taking your time to read and reflect on what happened
  • This is a remarkable memorial for the people who died during Second World War. The numbers written brings tears and very sombrer place.It is near Faneuil hall.
  • You can't help but walk out of this place with a changed outlook on humanity. Had a lump in my throat by the time I finished..
  • It would be wrong of me to try and capture the feeling of this place in mere words. The Numbers...... The Numbers etched into the glass. The stories of the slain. .
  • 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.
