We stopped by the Holocaust Memorial on a walk back into town from the Rose Test Garden. Definately worth a visit.

Simple but thought-provoking. A memorial wall, bronzes of personal possessions those deported left behind as suitcase, doll, eyeglasses, menorah. Very good explanation of Holocaust next to memorial wall. A worthwhile visit.

The Holocaust memorial in Portland is a serene, peaceful place. It's a trip down one of history's most horrific slaughters, and it's a reminder that the worst of humanity must be met with its best.

I didn't know there was a Holocaust memorial here. Found by accident. Learned a lot. Well represented with little bronzes of things people would have lost: a suitcase, a pair of glasses, a violin, a doll, a stuffed animal. Made it more human.

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it". Definitely worth a visit... while you're at Washington Park there are plenty of other things to do as well, so this can easily be added to an itinerary while visiting the park.

To combat the national fervor of the 4th, we stopped in at the Holocaust Memorial around 8:00 during the summer. It was still light out, but the sun was quickly setting. It was difficult in such lighting to read the poignant quotes on the "inside"...More
