    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 wavy field with 2711 steles and is intended to stimulate visitors to think with this abstract form. The memorial can be viewed from any side. The concrete pillars are of different heights. Depending on the viewer's point of view, the wavy pattern is created. The "Information Place" under the Holocaust Memorial documents the persecution and extermination of European Jews.
    Wavy also because walking between and over the stelae should be difficult.

    The visit to the memorial is impressive.
    Can be easily reached on foot from the Brandenburg Gate.
