Just a ten-minute walk from the beach, bars and shops you’ll find one of the world’s most impressive Holocaust memorials. I’ve seen many world war two monuments, but the Holocaust Memorial at Meridian Avenue, Miami Beach, is truly breathtaking.
Arriving at the Memorial, the bronze arm and hand reaching for the sky immediately strike you. On the arm you’ll see life-sized sculptures depicting the horrified victims of the Holocaust, their terrifyingly realistic expressions causing you to shiver all over.
Opposite the monument one can see a black granite wall on which the history of the Holocaust is narrated through photographs and text. To go from the monument to this impressive wall, you’ll walk through a tunnel made from Jerusalem stone, in which the names of the infamous death camps are written.
Throughout the whole memorial, black walls are engraved with the names of approximately 25,000 Holocaust victims. These names have been put forward by their descendants and the remaining blank walls leave room for more names to be added.
You cannot leave Miami without having seen the Holocaust Memorial.
