New England Holocaust Memorial

The New England Holocaust Memorial was built as a beacon of memory and hope, inviting all visitors to reflect on the impact of bigotry and to resolve to combat all forms of oppression. Located on the Boston's historic Freedom Trail, near Faneuil Hall, Quincy Market and many other treasures of American history, the site offers a unique opportunity for reflection on the meaning of oppression - and freedom - and on the importance of a society's respect for human rights.

The Memorial project was initiated by a group of Holocaust survivors living in the Boston area. By the time the site was dedicated, in October 1995, more than 3,000 individuals and organizations nationwide had joined in sponsoring the project.

Today a collaboration of individuals, government agencies and nonprofit organizations operates the Memorial. The Boston National Historical Park of the National Park Service maintains the site. Combined Jewish Philanthropies manages the site. The Jewish Community Relations Council coordinates programming. Facing History and Ourselves developed a value study guide and consults with schools and other groups on Holocaust education. Holocaust survivors and volunteers serve as educators.
