EuroTrip ’08 – Berlin, part VII, Holocaust Memorial

Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe where, by design, concrete slabs that are initially perfectly aligned, due to sinking of the soil, adopt all sorts of different angles. Looking down the “aisles”, one sees people, children playing hide-and-seek, and suddenly disappearing. People vanish, while the entire structure slowly turns from perfect order to disorder:

  1. This is a very well-designed memorial! It gives me the creeps every time I visit it – like it should.
