Holocaust Memorial
Holocaust Memorial

The Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, also called the Holocaust Memorial is an undulating 4.7 acre monument consisting of a grid of 2,711 concrete slabs (stalae) of varying height. Completed in December 2004 and dedicated on May 10, 2005, it is a place that will make an indelible impact on you.

While Peter Eisenman, the New York architect who designed the memorial, denies having any intention of the memorial resembling a burial site, many visitors do sense a resemblance to a cemetery or rows upon rows of coffins. However, this is an abstract memorial that can symbolize a very dark time and event in many different to different people.

The important thing is to remember, respect the many Jews who lost their lives in unspeakable ways during this dark time and to learn how small acts of discrimination and violence can quickly lead to much great atrocities.

As you venture deep into this memorial, take time to reflect and try to understand the great loss that was inflicted on people no different that you and I.

During your visit it is important to visit the underground Place of Information situated at the eastern edge. There you will find a timeline of events and much more detail and insight into the holocaust. There are themed rooms where you will find photographs, biographies, letters and even personal items of some of the families that suffered.
