The holocaust memorial in Berlin is formed by a large 19.000 m² site filled with 2711 concrete blocks placed in straight rows like silent unmarked graves. The monument is dedicated to all the Jewish victims of the Holocaust in Europe. It was designed by architect Peter Eisenman and built between 2003 en 2004. The monument was inaugurated on May 10th 2005, sixty years after the ending of World War Two.
When we visited the holocaust Memorial in Berlin it was a cloudy day, which desaturated the already grey monument even more.
Towards the Cora-Berliner Strasse you can find the entrance to an underground Information Center where the names of all known Jewish victims are kept and some of their stories are told.
