Fodor's Review

A bronze sculpture depicts refugees clinging to a giant bronze arm that reaches out of the ground and 42 feet into the air. Enter the surrounding courtyard to see a memorial wall and hear the music that seems to give voice to the 6 million Jews who died at the hands of the Nazis. It's easy to understand why Kenneth Treister's dramatic memorial is in Miami Beach: the city's community of Holocaust survivors was once the second-largest in the country.

WOW. An experience no living human being should miss.

I dare you not to weep! I've travelled 47 states, numerous countries, and this is hands-down the most moving experience to date. The outer area is visually beautiful, but the many photographs with accompanying history and especially the sculpture area in the center of the memorial will just about bring you to your knees. If everyone could see this, learn and never forget, maybe the world wouldn't be filled with so many horrors. Certainly no fool

would ever say the holocaust never happened. No religious persuasion or affiliation needed to appreciate this stunning and staggering monument to those who so horribly suffered and/or perished.
