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.Source in parts: berlin.de
