Holocaust Memorial

A beautifully modern monument to the victims of the Holocaust lies in the centre of Berlin to the south of the tourist trap of Brandenburg Gate, its tomb-like concrete chunks consuming a whole city-block.

Each of exactly the same dimensions, but of varying heights, the 2,711 slabs invite the viewer into a maze that culminates in an underground museum dedicated to the Jewish survivors of the Holocaust.
