Memorial to the murder Jews of Europe Sep 17, 2012
The memorial is located in the centre of Berlin - and when you consider the prices of building lots in this part of town you realize somebody in Germany really feel a need to make a worthy memorial for the events which took place a couple of generations ago. This big new memorial is from 2006 and it is build on an area which lay open during the cold war since it was just at the eastern side of the wall - so the communist wouldn’t build anything in this no-man land between east and west - they wanted to keep their killing zone free off construction.
For me the memorial seems a bit strange with just the many concrete blocks spread out over an area the size of an average city blog. There is not much else around except all these concrete blocks at different heights. Some of the concrete blogs are low but some are as high as four meters.
