Really nice to see this memorial - very close to Brandenburg gates and Reistag so can all be done in a few hours.

I was hoping to get to see this memorial and the tour we took with Fat Tire Bike Tours ended at this site. It is a memorial that evokes sadness, movement and curiosity which is a good range of emotions to experience connected to the Holocaust.

this may not look all that exciting just a random pile of large blocks, placed in a large area, if you go here as part of a tour you get a small understancimg of the reason behind it being done, but also by yourself you can draw your own feeling to the memorial, worthwhile to go tooo, also check out...

For me it looked like a "stone park" or labyrinth. Interesting place, leaves sad feelings. Unfortunately looked like not all the people knew what was it, because many teenagers were playing hide-and-seek there. Underground there is a museum for those, who want to know more.

Each block is at different heights. The long passageways gave an impression of some of the misery the jewish people must have had to face. The free exhibition below the memorial is well worth a visit.

Thought provoking place like a maze of granite slabs. Appreciate it's very symbolic and needs recognising but to be honest nothing much to keep you there.

I was left a little bit cold by the memorial on the surface. However the underground museum was extremely well done and very moving.

At first we didn't know what to make of this memorial, but as you walk amongst the higher and more imposing slabs of concrete you get a sense of what the artist was trying to convey - stark, cold hopelessness. The memorial experience was a little spoiled for us by a group of British teenagers running around shouting at each... More
