Holocaust Memorial - Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe

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.

Holocaust Memorial Reviews

Rated 4.6 out of 5 Star Rating

5 Star Rating This place is worth a visit! It's such a sad memorial. One should visit the underground museum. Every information is there from evacuation to capitulation! Every excerpt of the victims brings tears to your eyes! Feeling sad & grateful at the same time.

5 Star Rating Very moving space. Very different once you are inside than from driving by. There is an underground space we did not visit. Do not use a drone in the field. Do not stand on the blocks. Respect this space.

5 Star Rating Somber and intense and, occasionally, hopeful. Depends how you look at it. I found it extremely moving and was not prepared for how much it affected me. Strange contrast between an inward meditation on the atrocities humans afflict on each other and twenty-somethings playing hide and seek amongst the tombs.

4 Star Rating I really wish that I hade the time to go down to see the monument and read about everything. But just walking around made me understand how big and terrible this thing this was.

5 Star Rating free entry. i was expecting to find a very respectful environment but there were groups of teenagers and school trips where they let them loose. it’s not a place to pose and pout, or play tag but each to their own i guess.
