Quite a serene area, but then you see the art pieces...the doll on the bench; the book, the teddy bear, and suitcase on the walkway. Take some time to read the memorial information, and don't neglect to walk around the back to see the names...More

This memorial is smaller than I thougth. It is basically a wall with a summary of the war and some phrases of the people who were there. It is nice to visit, but not required!

This isn't the kind of thing you "enjoy"...it's the kind of thing you never forget. Just one more thing that gives Portland it's unique flavor and personality. Portlandia won't be filming here.

My husband and I were getting some exercise and decided to walk over to the memorial. We were so delighted with every part of it. There are wonderful small things you see as you walk up to the wall that will really stir your memory....More

This is a great tribute to those who perished in the Holocaust. Please make sure that you walk behind the wall to see and read the names on the back of those related to family in the area.
