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 6 million Jewish victims of the Holocaust. Located within walking distance of both the Brandenburg Gate and Potsdamer Platz, the memorial consists of the Field of Stelae, designed by Peter Eisenman, and an underground information center.

The Field of Stelae is composed of 2,711 concrete pillars, or stelaes, of varying heights that form a grid-like structure that can be approached and viewed from all angles. Visitors can often feel the somberness of the memorial while walking among the pillars. 

The modern underground modern information center complements the outdoor memorial and offers information about the victims of the Holocaust and a deeper understanding of the tragedy. Highlights include the Room of Names, which dissolves the incomprehensible abstract number of 6 million murdered Jews by releasing the victims from their anonymity. The name, year of birth and death date of each person is projected onto the four walls. The Room of Dimensions showcases diary notes and farewell letters written by those who suffered, while the Room of Families displays photographs and personal documents that report on the splitting up, expulsion and destruction of 15 different families, while tracing the contrast between life before, during and after the persecution.
