Well, you can't really miss it when you're in the area but it's also not much to it. It's worth a stop because any Holocaust memorial is worth a stop, reflection, and pay your respects.

a simple but emotionally moving place. A memorial to never forget . The tower in the front overseas the monument just as the stacks over the crematoriums.

Another sad passage in our modern history... Presented visually and strong. As much as I hate it, this must be remembered.... Especially in times like now ...

Locating a short walk from the Old Town in a residentially community. Although one may think an odd location, it makes sense as it represents those from the community of Bucharest that were persecuted and died. Stark - justifiably. Surrounded by local community residents having...More

This memorial is a must as we must learn from history and prevent it from repeating itself. Good with memorial to initiate diskussion with the teenagers.

No eternal flame here, but a simple concrete structure with a chimney. Finally in 2009 a memorial was built for over 300,000 Jewish and Roma Romanians killed at the orders of the fascist Antonescu government during WOII. Testimony also to the Jews from the Northwest...More
