Denkmal für die ermordeten Juden Europas

I have always taken a great interest in the world wars. Especially what it did to the innocent people. This included also the most targeted community. Therefore one of the reasons of going to Berlin was also visiting and finding more about what happened to Jews in Germany. At some places I even thought of the fact that only about 70 years ago a lot would have been happening on the grounds of Berlin. Right where I was standing.

The Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe which is located in the centre of Berlin is the German Holocaust Memorial honouring and remembering the six million Jewish victims of the Holocaust. It can be found between the Brandenburg Gate and Potsdamer Platz and was designed by Peter Eisenman .

The design of it is very interesting as there were a lot interpretations that me and my cousin concluded on but at the end of the day the interpretation is open to everyone. That is what I like about it especially, that there is no information board saying anything about it. Instead it is just in the middle of the city where everyone can just walk in and out of it. Making it almost look like it is just any normal memorial but once you are in it, that is when it gets you start thinking about it and makes it differ from all the other memorials.
