The Holocaust Memorial

The Holocaust Memorial, also known as The Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, is an urban tribute to remember and honor up to six million Jewish victims of the Holocaust. Located within walking distance between the Brandenburg Gate and Potsdamer Platz, the Memorial consists of the Field of Stelae designed by Peter Eisenman and the underground Information Center.

Eisenmann set up 2,711 concrete pillars - so-called stelaes - of varying heights to create a grid-like structure that can be approached from all angles. You can feel the unmarked and harrowed suffering as you walk through the pillars that rise as you continue through them.

The underground and modern information center complements the outdoor memorial, where visitors can learn more about the victims of the Holocaust and deepen understanding about this tragedy.

Highlights in the Information Center include the Room of Names, which dissolves the incomprehensible abstract number of six million murdered Jews and to release the victims from their anonymity. At the same time, the name, year of birth and death of each person is projected on the four walls.

The Room of Dimensions holds the notes in the diaries and farewell letters of those who suffered in the Holocaust and enables visitors to get a glimpse of the suffering in the face of violence and war. In the Room of Families, photographs and personal documents report on the splitting up, expulsion and destruction of 15 different families and trace the contrast between life before, during and after the persecution.

The gift shop provides some comprehensive literature about the war and the Holocaust for further learning.
