The Holocaust memorial at the Brandenburg Gate

The Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe is situated between the Brandenburg Gate and Potsdamer Platz (opposite the American Embassy). The memorial is a place of memory and the central memorial in Germany.

In 1999 it was decided in the Bundestag to design a memorial and the New York architect Peter Eisenman was assigned to it. The project started 2003 and already two years later the memorial was opened. On a total area of 19,000 qm² 2711 concrete slaps were erected.

They are between 1m and 4.70m high and have different inclinations. The slaps have also been built on an uneven area. The memorial is open to all sides.
You have to experience yourself, to describe the feelings you get walking through, as it is very hard to put into words the impression that one gets. The raised slaps partially act threatening and you can quickly loose your orientation.

The memorial has won several awards, such as the 2007 "Honor Award for Architecture" of the American Institute of Architects (AIA).
