In front of the Union Oyster House. Very moving inscriptions and the steam coming from the ground simulating the gas at the prison camps was overwhelming

This Memorial does not figure always in any typical Boston tour or itinerary. I suppose its better off that way. Because the place is small and wouldnt take well to huge traffic The names of each of the known victims from the Holocaust is mentioned...More

Tasteful memorial. Peaceful although in the centre. A place for reflecting. Close to the freedom trail. Each column bears the numbers of a million victims

A modern structure to showcase the catastrophe of the Holocaust. Very moving and thought provoking. We began our walk of the Freedom Trail here - very appropriate.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
