This is a very moving and different monument. Easy to miss it's just below Old Town near Fat Margaret tower and remember there are 2 pieces about 100 meters apart. It is quite moving. Well done.

History behind it is already described in many comments, but feeling when you go there can't be described when you know what it presents. Visit itself is very short, but really if you have time to go, you should go.

The Broken Line Monument is right next to the Fat Margaret Tower and City Entrance. It seems like most of the Cruise shippers come into the city this way and as such, there were lots hanging from every place possible on the monument. A sad...More
