Denkmal für die ermordeten Juden Europas / Holocaust-Memorial
The Holocaust-Memorial in Berlin is a monument to the memorial of the murdered European Jews. This memorial is the central German Holocaust Memorial, a place to honour and remember the up to six million Jewish victims of the Holocaust. Located between the Brandenburger Tor and Potsdamer Platz, the Memorial consists of the Field of Stelae designed by Peter Eisenman and a subterranean Information Centre.
The Field of Stelae consists of 2,711 concrete slabs or "stelae". The stelae vary in height from 0.2 to 4.8 m (7.9 in to 15 ft 9 in). According to Peter Eisenman, the stelae are designed to produce an uneasy, confusing atmosphere. With this feeling he is trying to make the experiences of the Jewish population clear.
