An abstract piece of art remembers the murdered Jews. An indescribable installation for an incomprehensible part of history.

It's worth visiting. If ever I get the chance to go back to Berlin, I will definitely visit it again. The cement block are all uneven, which makes it more difficult knowing how many there are, like the amount of Jewish people who died during World War II (we know an approximate number of people who died, but not the...

A silent historical must. The architechtural design is outstanding, heavy, dark and frightening. Ypu can almost feel the helpelessness....

Very solemn and emotional monument. A reminder of the horrors of the war. Most see. Walk through the concrete maze of tombs like structures of different heights and be transported and compelled by the atrocities of the war.

Near from walk distance to Brandenburg Tor, each block represents a murdered Jew. A friend of half Jewish origin has found out her family's name in one of concrete block of different size. Walking through the uneven corridors you can get lost among so many grey blocks, but the sense is that there were so many people murdered during the... More

This is underground and you have to go through the concrete maze! It was quite upsetting as it made you reflect on individuals and families stories so it made it very personal. Definitely would go again!

At first look it is easy to understand how some people just don't feel the impact of this monument. But as you spend time there, the overwhelming horror of what it represents becomes almost palpable; you can feel a sense of helplessness, personal fear and an inability to cope with the inevitable. This is not just about remembering, but feeling... More

At first you just see a lot of grey concret blocks but as you walk through the corridors you can remember the reason why this monument was built and the horrific time in history it represents.

I was completely surprised by this memorial. Our excellent Tourist Guide Aneka pointed out that it would be ridiculous to put up a traditional memorial stone with 6 million names on it, which would never be read. So there are 2,711 slabs, or concrete blocks, (I remember exactly the number she told us!) representing the Jews who suffered Hitler's "Final... More

Walking throw the memorial is an experience. Without a word, it delivers impressions, feelings. Do not forget that there is also a documentation under that most people miss. Entrance is at the opposite side of the park.
