Visit Boston: New England Holocaust Memorial


While in Boston, walking to and from Faneuil Hall, we passed the New England Holocaust Memorial.

The granite and glass memorial consists of 6 towers that light up at night. The number 6 represents the millions of of people killed during the holocaust.

On the walls of each tower are the inscriptions of seven-digit numbers, symbolic of the numbers tattooed on the arms of concentration camp prisoners.






Walking through the memorial was quite gut-wrenching as I realized what the numbers meant. The sheer volume of numbers was just so overwhelming.

There are many other symbolic features of the monument, and it's too bad we didn't have enough time to really absorb everything.

If you have some time while in Boston, pay a visit to the New England Holocaust Memorial. It will definitely leave a lasting impression.
