    The artist has managed something great that makes me speechless. To go through in silence, but also to experience the pulsating life around ... contradictions? Maybe. Every visit to Berlin makes this memorial a must.

    The Holocaust memorial consists of a wave-shaped field with 2711 steles and is intended to make visitors think with this abstract form. The "Information Center" under the Holocaust Memorial documents the persecution and extermination of European Jews.

    You can clearly see various cracks in the blocks - one of the blocks is supported with iron frames to prevent breakup.

    The Holocaust memorial consists of a wave-shaped field with 2,711 steles and is intended to stimulate visitors to reflect with this abstract shape. The memorial can be viewed from every side. The concrete steles are of different heights. This creates the wavy pattern depending on the viewer's point of view. The "Information Center" located under the Holocaust Memorial documents the persecution and extermination of European Jews.
    Wave-shaped also because walking between and over the steles should be arduous.

    Very impressive. Be sure to visit the "Information Center" below the Holocaust memorial.

    Visiting the memorial is impressive.
    Can be easily reached on foot from the Brandenburg Gate.

    Impressed. Oppressive atmosphere. Energetically very dense.
    Really successful!

    There are certainly different interpretations of this. In between I got the idea that the blocks represent the Hitler regime in their ice-cold, tough, monotonous immobility. The SS, the laws, the courts, the whole system. There is no escape, the supervision is comprehensive. No space to live, for freedom, for individuality. Just rigidity, cold. No empathy, no humanity.
    And in between on the narrow paths the individual visitor who gets anxious. A shadow of the Jewish person who has no chance in this ice-cold and rock-hard system. No space. Just tight.

    The Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, or Holocaust Memorial for short, in the historic center of Berlin commemorates the approximately six million Jews who were murdered under the rule of Adolf Hitler and the National Socialists.
    The memorial, which was designed by Peter Eisenman, consists of 2,711 cuboid concrete steles.
    It was built between 2003 and spring 2005 on an area of around 19,000 m² south of the Brandenburg Gate.

    The Holocaust Memorial is a memorial which is intended to commemorate the murdered Jews in Europe who were murdered during the Second World War. Whether the memorial with its cuboid concrete blocks was successful is certainly a matter of debate. Definitely not an 'ordinary' monument.

    This spot is next to the Brandenburger gate and the idea behind it is to showcase what in the time till 1945 happened
