Over a million names are inscribed/etched in the glass at this museum along with significant quotes relevant to the holocaust.

We happened upon this memorial and walked through it and read every inscription. It is a wonderful tribute to those lives lost and it has been well put together and easy to read a few quotes from survivors. Memorials like this are sad but necessary,...More

This is a must see when visiting Quincy Market / Faneuil Hall. Right across the street from several touristy places, (I'd hit the Union Oyster House - great Clam Chowder), it's a sobering reminder of those who suffered during the 1930's and 40's.

We happened upon the Holocaust Memorial on a recent visit. It is hauntingly done, and very tasteful. There were a lot of visitors when we were there.

We were unsure about this one but decided to try . Very confronting and we only stayed 1 hour. Not ideal for young ones at all. Would not do a return trip. But history is history and you cant deny what happened.

Your visit here will be short, but it definitely is a spot you must see. There are quotes on the tall glass columns that are heart-wrenching. At the beginning of the memorial (south or east side, I believe) is a timeline and brief history. Then...More

We stubled on this by accident, and I'm very glad we did. My 11 year old was taken by it and was able to learn without being overwhelmed. It is a beautiful memorial and recommed going by.

Located between Faneuil Hall and the North End, the Holocaust Memorial is almost easy to overlook - but don't. It's a sobering reminder of the atrocities, designed in a way to make you think about the world around us. It will only take 15 to...More
