The New England Holocaust Memorial

Holocaust Memorial: Free and Always Open

Please take the time to pay your respects at The New England Holocaust Memorial.

It is a beautifully designed outdoor structure that is always open and available to the public. It is also easily accessible in Carmen Park on Congress Street near Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market.

You can embark on a self-guided tour or schedule a guided tour.

What was the Holocaust?

The Holocaust was the systematic persecution and murder of approximately six million Jews by the Nazi regime and its collaborators.

“Holocaust” is a word of Greek origin meaning “sacrifice by fire.”

The Nazis, who came to power in Germany in January 1933, believed that Germans were “racially superior” and that the Jews, deemed “inferior,” were an alien threat to the so-called German racial community. Read more.

Creation of the Holocaust Memorial

The vision for the Memorial began with Holocaust survivor, Stephan Ross, and other Boston area survivors of Nazi concentration camps. Eventually, they received support and sponsorship from more than 3,000 individuals and organizations.

The Holocaust Memorial Design holocaust-memorial-tower

According to the website:
The Memorial is designed around six luminous glass towers, each reaching 54 feet high, and each lit internally from top to bottom. The number six has many meanings here: the millions of Jews killed in the Holocaust; the names of the six main death camps; a row of memorial candles; and the six years, 1939-1945, during which the infamous “Final Solution,” the most deadly phase of the Holocaust, took place. In addition, millions of numbers are etched in the glass, representing the infamous tattoos inflected on many of the victims’ arms. Read more.
