  • Clearly a solemn moment, not the most artistic memorial, but when you stand and think, just incredulous at what cruelty people can exercise to others. :-(  more »
  • I have visited a number of holocaust memorials and I have to say that this is the ugliest that I can recall.It does a disservice to the victims of this tragedy.  more »

  • It's supposed to represent a library with books placed spine backwards, the significance of which was lost on me. If I didn't know I would have thought it was something to do with the underground railway. It's astonishing that the opportunity to mark such a tragedy has been wasted.
  • A nice little square tucked away from a lot of things. The memorial was nice to visit and to remember the horrors of WW2 suffered at the hands of the Jewish people.
