The basics

Located in the City Center neighborhood, the Holocaust Memorial is the brainchild of several Holocaust survivors, who, in 1984, came together as the nonprofit Holocaust Memorial Committee. Architect Kenneth Treister was selected to design the memorial, and its cast bronze Sculpture of Love and Anguish—notable for its distinctive, outstretched arm—opened in 1990.

This free attraction is open daily, and you can purchase a brochure to make the most of a self-guided tour. This centrally-located sight is steps from the Miami Beach Convention Center, and just a short walk from the shopping promenade on Lincoln Road. For a more relaxing outing, add a visit to the Miami Beach Botanical Garden; it's a near-perfect spot for a rejuvenating stroll.
