Memorial

Denkmal für die ermordeten Juden Europas.

Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe.

Židovský památník.

Mémorial aux juifs assassinés d’Europe.

Holocaust Memorial.

Just a bunch of hugmongous slabs of marble coincidentally thrown on a plot of land in Berlin.

Call it whatever you want, as long as the word ‘moving‘ of something to that effect is implied.  Because that is what this is.  Simply moving.

As you approach this, you are just simply in awe.  When you begin walking through, its just a series of hallways and corridors, all running parallel and perpindicular to one another.  There is actually a decline as you walk t’wards the mdidle, and as you exit again, you walk up an incline.  So at one point, a good majority of the stones are several feet above your head.
