Many people will say that one of the worst genocides in history is Adolph Hitler’s attempt to destroy the Jewish nation in Europe and throughout the world. Millions of innocent people who had done nothing against Adolph Hitler or the Nazi’s were put to death. Sadly, to many railroad fans, the railroad played a major role as the Jewish people were shoved and packed into wooden box cars and taken to the concentration camps to be murdered. The Nazi’s were defeated in World War II bringing an end to this atrocity. Many memorials and museum were erected around the world to remember what happened to these people. One of these memorials is the Holocaust Memorial in Baltimore, Maryland.
As you walk through the memorial, you will feel the impact of what happened to the Jewish people. Imbedded in the ground are railroad tracks to remember how the railroad played a role in this atrocity. Please note that some of the images at this memorial are very disturbing.
The Holocaust Memorial in Baltimore in the U.S. state of Maryland in located at the intersection of Lombard Street and Gay Street. It is just a few blocks north of the Inner Harbor. The memorial is free to visit and is open twenty-four hours a day. Only street parking is available, and the memorial is wheelchair accessible.
