Why 3 stars? I am always disappointed in that these memorials do not portray the full scale of what happened. They only focus on Jewish victims. There were more than 10 million people who died in German camps, yet only the 6 million Jews are...More

Located in a very peaceful and secluded location near some local family friendly attractions, this is a very honorable tribute to a sacred memory of sadness and loss.

Visiting the holocaust memorial was a thought-provoking and intense experience. The path, the structure, and the objects along the way all make for a stunning memorial.

It's a thoughtful and compact memorial with surprising artifacts. Worth a detour within Washington Park.

Came upon the memorial while navigating the walk directions. Poignant! There are bronze articles scattered long the route leading to the "wall" as if they were lost while in a terrible hurry. A large tablet (booklike) outlined the buildup to WWII and the genocide of...More

As other people say, this is very much worth a visit. Take the time. The write-up on the Holocaust is good background, and I had a longish conversation with a woman who found the memorial very moving.

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.
