In Miami Beach, just blocks from the sound of club music pouring out of every door and sun-baked tourists walking in and out of the shops and restaurants on Lincoln Road is the Holocaust Memorial. Located directly behind the convention center on Meridian Avenue, this is a quiet oasis with sculptures, photographs and a reflecting pool, devoted to the rememberance of the thousands that died in the holocaust.

According to the website, the four-story bronze arm rising from the center of the pool, tattooed with numbers from Auschwitz, represents those who died in concentration camps thinking that no one would care or remember.

Make your way to this quiet and beautiful memorial  to wander through and ponder this painful, poignant moment in history.

The memorial is open 9 a.m. to sundown daily and there is no charge for admission.
