New England Holocaust Memorial

(126)

The New England Holocaust Memorial is a memorial in Boston, Massachusetts, U.S. It is dedicated to the Jewish people who were killed by Nazi Germany during the Holocaust.InformationDesigned by Stanley Saitowitz, founded by Holocaust Survivor Stephen Ross, and erected in 1995, the memorial consists of six glass towers under which a visitor may walk. Engraved on the outside walls of each tower are groups of numbers representing the six million Jews killed in the Holocaust. Inscribed on the inner walls are quotes from survivors of each camp. Underneath the towers, steam rises up through metal grates from a dark floor with twinkling lights on it.Each tower symbolizes a different major extermination camp (Majdanek, Chełmno, Sobibor, Treblinka, Bełżec, and Auschwitz-Birkenau), but can also be taken to be menorah candles, the six million Jews killed in the Holocaust (one million per column), and the six years that the mass extermination took place, 1939-1945.
