This was an interesting memorial and is located right in the heart of lots of Boston history. (You probably won't need to spend a ton of time here) Ye Old Oyster House, Faneuil Hall, Durgin Park are close by.

Walking through this memorial is extremely moving. Seeing all the names just sends chills through you. So sad to think of the torture

A very moving memorial, it mentions all the groups the Nazi's were after. Take your time and read all the quotations and descriptions. You can walk through it in less than a minute, or easily spend an hour there. Ironically, if you take your time going through it, you'll be in a very different emotional state than from spending time... More

Have walked through this before but never taken my kids. During our recent visit to Boston we shared this memorial with our children, ages 9-14 and each one of them were moved by the written words and steam walk through.

The first time I saw it I thought it was odd to see it in downtown Boston, where the focus is on Revolutionary war history, etc. But it is quite fitting right there. Highly recommend seeing it an night if possible. Start at the beginning and read each marker. It is SO moving in it's simplicity. I have visited it... More

This is really well done! It is heart rendering and yet humbling to think that people had to undergo the that kind of treatment. What a fantastic display! The towers and their writings are very touching. Everything is kept clean and it's a great place to visit.

Took our boy and his buddy and walked them through this Memorial, it is a powerful statement to say the least and they got a lot out of it

Very well done, informative and emotional memorial. The mist in each box really adds to the depth of the memorial.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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 your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
