Trip Planner: Europe / Germany / Berlin / The Holocaust Memorial - Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe
One of the most moving and controversial sites in the world, The Holocaust Memorial - Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe is a massive artwork, covering an entire city block. Designed by architect Peter Eisenman, it features nearly 3,000 concrete slabs arranged in a grid pattern on a sloping field. The work is meant to produce an uneasy, confusing atmosphere, and many liken it to an abstract representation of a cemetery. The slabs are approximately 2.4 m (7 ft) long, 1 m (3 ft) wide, and vary in height from 20 cm to 5 m (8 in to 16 ft). They start out at ground level on the outer edges of the memorial and grow taller towards the middle, where the ground slopes downwards. Look for the underground museum, which offers extensive details on the Holocaust and the people who died during it. The site attracts nearly 4 million visitors each year.

"The psychological effect of the complex is achieved by architectural means" (c) Actually a very impressive work. But I did not put the highest rating because only after I read in Internet what the author wanted to convey, I realized what feelings I experienced there. The author managed to show the picture that he wanted to show. He managed to make the visitor to feel what he wanted to give to feel at the monument. But I belong to the type of people who want not only to “feel / see something” in art, but also to understand this art (yes, even a monument dedicated to such a topic, to some extent is an art). But let it be purely my attitude, since this does not underestimate the value of this monument or the emotions that I experienced there.
I’m not sure why should there be unfixed cracks on the blocks but let me tell you that’s a crime to a architecture of such. The place is peaceful and at the same time makes you really uncomfortable. It’s really a mixed feeling. While you try to enjoy the amazing sight of the site there is always something at the back of your head which tells you not to for its a memorial site installed for a depressing cause. Peace to the world
