"Halocaust Memorial" Museum Judenplatz - Jewish Square Tip by easterntrekker


We made our way to Judenplatz and were surprised to see the reinforced concrete cube which is the tribute to the halocaust vistims . The doors are locked and the books face inwards. The base of the memorial has the names of the places where 65,000 Austrian Jews were murdered by the Nazis. Created by British artist Rachel Witeread, the memorial's barred room and books that cannot be read represent the loss of those who were murdered. I guess no memorial could ever be enough but this one falls short .
