Jewish Memorial, Berlin Germany

Close to the Brandenburg Gate in the heart of Berlin, the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe is also found. It is a memorial that is a stele-field which can be approached and walked through from all sides, serving as a central place for remembering and reminding people of the Holocaust.

On an area of about 19.000 square metres, the New York based architect Peter Eisenmann set up 2.711 concrete pillars – so-called steles – of varying heights to create a grid-like structure. The terrain is smooth yet unevenly inclined. Visitors can enter the structure from all four sides and thus the wave-like shape of each side is perceived in a different manner depending on where one is.

The extraordinary design, which was revised several times, represents a radical approach to creating a monument. The memorial is also complemented by a well-designed underground information centre, which was also designed by Eisenmann, possessing an unique form of architecture which encompasses 800 square metres, where visitors can learn about the victims of the Holocaust and the various places of horror.
