Recommend seeing it on a trip to Berlin. A place to remember a catastrophe that happened decades ago.

Every point of analyzing this memorial is ok. Must have a cultural description and dampness of history to really comprehend what the architect tried to represent. Interesting facts about the companies involved in the making.

I saw this memorial on my Segway Tour (Fat Tire) when I was in Berlin. This is truly an amazing memorial and the history behind it is truly amazing. I will not spoil it for you by telling you. If/when you come to Berlin get a tour guide (walking, bike, Segway, open top bus, etc) and see the wonderful sites... More

I really enjoyed seeing and being in the centre of this memorial - You are on a busy street but as you walk into the centre you feel a total silence coming over you even though there is many people around - Its a must see !!

The museum takes you through a macro perspective of the holocaust that many are familiar with. But as you move forward, it gets into the lives of individuals through their original letters written after their capture by the SS, traces the history of some of the families in detail, tracks the places where these acts of heartlessness were carried out...

The Holocaust Memorial is really nice to visit by a sunny day. You can "play" around: try to find out each other in this labyrinth. You can also enjoy a simple walk through this blocks field. It will definitely not let you unmoved.

This memorial was, I believe, designed to have greater impact than a "typical" memorial - and it does. You kind of get drawn in (especially with children), first hopping between obelisks and then following the canyons down, disappearing down into the depths where it gets very disorientating and you feel like you could easily get lost - and feel quite...

One of the most simple yet moving museums I've ever been to. A must when in Berlin, in fact a must for every one so that we as the human race never repeat these horrific, barbaric events.

I visited just the sculpture memorial first, and walked through it and thought about its meaning, but it wasn't until I returned that I went down to see the museum. The museum puts faces and stories to some of the millions who died in the Holocaust and is on a par with the Holocaust museum in Washington, DC, if smaller.... More

This monument is absolutely exceptional, sober, moving and I think that the conceptor was short of genial in his conception of the work. I do not always appreciate, love or understand modern art but there I was moved to tears. From the corner where we started, it looked as some sort of anonymous cemete ry with a great number of...
