Holocaust Memorial

The Holocaust Memorial Miami Beach is a proud part of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation. Each year, more than 100,000 people visit this important Miami Beach landmark, known worldwide for its dramatic sculptures and unforgettable exhibits dedicated to the six million Jews murdered during World War II.

The centerpiece of the Memorial is the Sculpture of Love and Anguish, an enormous bronze representation of an outstretched arm, rising from the earth and stretching toward the heavens. The entire sculpture area comprises vignettes of family members trying to help each other in a final act of love.

The Memorial also includes the Arbor of History, a series of black granite slabs etched with photographs of Holocaust history. There are places for quiet reflection and study at the Memorial, too.


Holocaust survivors serve as docents at the Memorial, providing testimony and explanations for visitors.

Committed to promoting education, outreach and understanding among people of all ages and backgrounds, the Memorial offers lectures, teacher seminars and school tours. Programs are also organized to commemorate Kristallnacht, Holocaust Memorial Day, Yom Hashoah and other important dates on the Jewish calendar.

Located at 1933-1945 Meridian Avenue, Miami Beach, the Holocaust Memorial Miami Beach is open 9 a.m. to sundown daily. There is no charge for admission.
