24 Memorable Pictures of Berlin’s Holocaust Memorial

Pin It

Berlin’s ‘Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe’, as it is officially called, consists of 2,711 concrete slabs, the tallest of which is just under 16 feet. As you head towards the center of the memorial, the ground slopes down and the concrete slabs suddenly tower above you.

From the edges, the memorial looks a lot smaller than it is, and it is designed to instill a sense of unease and disorientation, especially in the center as the passages heading out seem endless. The concrete also looks very different depending on the season and the light. The memorial makes for a profound experience, and memorable pictures.
