The New England Holocaust Memorial is in Boston and during a visit we found ourselves near the memorial. This wasn’t my first time visiting the memorial, but this time it hit me what the meaning of each glass tower and numbers represented. There are six towers and they represent six of the concentration camps. Etched in the glass are the numbers of the Holocaust victims. Simple and very moving! It was tough for me to wrap my head around that each number was a human. Families forever changed. I highly recommend the memorial, we must remember the past to not relive now or in the future. The homepage of the website talks about why the memorial was constructed. Thank you to those survivors for the vision of the memorial:

Inspired by a group of Holocaust survivors who found new lives in the Boston area, the New England Holocaust Memorial was built to foster reflection on the impact of bigotry and the outcomes of evil during World War II and to this day.
