The memorial is located downtown but it's tricky to get to if you don't know the area. I am used to visiting the DC musuem but clearly it's just a memorial. The plaque, design,etc just makes you want to appreciate what took place and how...More

Not the best location for a memorial of this magnitude. It's located downtown so parking becomes an issue. City folks are looking for another location. The important thing is to never forget.

This is one museum you must see if visiting the DC area. The last time I came was when is first opened about 25 years ago. Moving and thought provoking, sad too but it is a part of history and something never to be forgotten...More

One of the most poignant memorials. The sculpture really depicted the horror of the mass terminations. The plaque actually noted that although many were "just following orders" there is no record of anything happening to those who chose not to.

It was pretty sad, but its history, so always good to read about history. Just a little memorial that we walked by and we just had to stop.

We happened across this memorial while walking back to our daughter's apartment one evening. Maybe it was the lighting and the fact we were startled but it sort of took my breath away. This isn't the Holocaust Museum in DC; it's a statue. You can...More

We stumbled on the memorial by accident. It's located away from the tourist-friendly Inner Harbour and it's very poignant. It does seem a bit incongruous and bare among city buildings but it's a meaningful memorial to a very tragic period of history.

I know the Holocaust was a horrible thing, but does the statue you put up to memorialize it have to be of skin-and-bones people on fire? That just seems morbid to me.

A multifaceted memorial. Center stage is the walll with poignant inscriptions and a wired gate. Both sides and forefront have train tracks. The tracks are reminiscent of the trains that carried the unsuspected to death or leaving death. In the forefront is a sculpture of...More

We happened upon the memorial by accident. The area appears to have been taken over by homeless people, and it struck me as sad that a memorial designed to be alienating, austere, and bleak would be an attractive place for sleeping rough. The wall with...More
