  Building the memorial
by sabsi

2003: After a long discussion the German parliament said YES to the building of a huge Holocaust memorial between Brandenburg Gate and Potsdamer Platz. This is about the same space where the Nazi bunkers were so I guess it is an excellent idea to put some arty memorial here.

The Field of Steles is an impressive idea and I am curious what it will be like once it's finished (probably in May 2005, 60 years after the war ended). 2,700 concrete blocks will form a big field, they will be of various heights so that there will be a wave effect.

When I was here 6 blocks were already there. Make sure to check how the building goes when you are in Berlin!
