"Memorial to the Murdered European Jews" Holocaust Memorial Tip by smirnofforiginal

Holocaust Memorial, Berlin: 75 reviews and 155 photos

 
 

The Memorial to the Murdered European Jews is moer commonly known as Holocaust Memorial. It was designed by Peter Eisenman, an archetect from New York.

Sitting on a large area of prime real estate it is a sea of grey concrete pillars of different heights which form quite a disorientating maze. Some of the pillar lean slightly and the floor is angled in places and bumpy in others.

Whilst this is a memorial it was full of life and people enjoying the maze during the daytime. As the day wore on and there were less people the maze grew quieter and became more a place for thought, reflection and rememberance.

Address: Ebertstr
