Boston holocaust monument

I stumbled upon this photo when I visited a Chicagoan in Montreal blog. He had snapped this photo of the Boston Jewish Holocaust Memorial. Considering Yom Kippur starts at sundown tonight, I thought it appropriate to post.

Cities around the world have built their own holocaust memorials, but the six glass towers and the path you walk through in Boston near Government Center is incredibly somber.

I will have to check that out sometime on one of my (rare) Boston layovers.

I saw that the last time I was there. Definitely worth a look-see.

I actually visited this when I was in Boston - cried like a baby.

Beautiful monument... recommend all to visit it.

I remember when this first went up. It truly is amazing - one of the most moving memorials - when you stop and study all those tiny numbers, each representing a lost life.
