The New England Holocaust Memorial Reviews & Ratings
A phenomenal memorial, anyone giving less than 5 stars is insane. The thought put into it is fantastic, and despite being in the middle of a busy city you still can walk in and be completely in your own world. No fee to get in, no staff, don't plan on this being more than a 25 minute experience unless you have planned something special. My group only took about 10 minutes to go through but you could take more or less depending on how impacted you are by the memorial.
In some ways more effective than a stand alone museum. I saw many people happen upon it, interrupting their walk through Boston, not knowing what it was until they began reading the stories and tilting their heads up to see the staggering amount of serial numbers displayed. Beautifully done, gets me every time.
Emotional experience.... They have steam coming up the group, which if you stand right there makes it hard to breathe. That makes you start to wonder how they suffered so much more than just steam for long periods of time. There are quotes from the survivors of the holocaust, which is from someone's son, daughter, brother, sister, parent of the people that were killed. Gives a sick feeling knowing how the survivors must have felt looking at such gruesome things happening to the ones they love.
Very moving. Made me aware of things I hadn't known. Well worth a visit.
An extremely moving and significant memorial. A sobering experience especially in the light of the world right now. Highly recommend a visit.
