Walking through the different sections which designated each of the concentration camps and reading real stories of the survivors was unbelievable.

I definitely recommend seeing this - it is really interesting and there are loads of different peoples stories along the way for you to read. It is sad, but one of my favourite things I did there.

I liked the idea of a memorial. Thankfully it is free and also free of too much drama. Unless you are Jew who lost some direct relative in the holocaust, I don't recommend going there. good news is, it is easily accessible to public transit....More

This particular spot is meaningful for it beings back the Holocaust of WWII. It is surreal. Day or night it has meaning and purpose.

Modern, with much thought about some of the darkest times for Jews around the world. It takes some time to read and digest and that is covered. Not something to quickly walk thorough. Conveniently located next to the Freedom trail.

After Berlin's monumental memorial, this striking row of glass towers, sparkling in the sun, seems lightweight in comparison. It's only when you get up close that you see every victim's concentration camp number etched in the glass. ........Millions and millions of them. It's stunning in...More
