This is the most moving Holocaust memorial I've seen apart from the one in Berlin. Located on the site of the synagogue that was destroyed during Kristallnacht. The memorial/monument is in 2 parts - on both sides of the street. The dark band around the...More

This is a very imposing brutalistic memorial built on the spot where Wiesbaden's synagogue stood before being burned down in Kristallnacht. Its walls are the Holocaust memorial bearing the names of all the Wiesbaden Jews who died in Auschwitz. There's good audio information on one...More

A nice memorial to Wiesbaden Holocaust victims. Much like the Vietnam memorial in DC, it has a little information and a list of names on a wall.

I think it was build 2010, so it is one of the newer memorials. To my knowledge this is the first proper memorial for the Holocause in Wiesbaden.

Unlike to Japanese who still deny their cruelty during the WWII, this serves as a reminder that war is always cruel. I agree while it is well designed perhaps more can be added to it perhaps an underground museum below this site to provide more...More

The Holocaust Memorial was very nice but was very little to see. The system that provides sound so we could hear something about the memorial was not working. I just read what was on the wall. I didn't see any names or stories of those...More

Is a small memorial, not much to see it but still nice to honor the victims. It is just a wall where a synagogue used to be, very easy access from the city center.
