Modern and Moving
When I first saw this Memorial, I was really disappointed. I thought it looked impersonal and just plain ugly. That was from afar. Walking through the actual memorial is a truly moving experience. The quotations, the names, the sounds of steam all come together to create an interactive reminder. I try to visit every time I go to Boston.
The accessibility of the memorial is also a really wonderful aspect.

New England Holocaust Memorial, Boston, 1995.
Stanley Saitowitz, sculptor
In Boston Down Town a slender line of glass and steel towers constitutes one of the simplest but most impressive holocaust monuments I have seen so far. Go there and read the stories!!
Here is one:
They came first for the Communists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Catholics,
and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me,
and by that time no one was left to speak up.
Boston's Holocaust Memorial is a series of transparent structures made to resemble smoke-stacks. Each tower is etched with the numbers that were assigned to holocaust victims. Quotes from survivors are also visible. It's a very moving testimonial for remembrance.
