The Holocaust Memorial
The Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, also known as the Holocaust Memorial (in german: Denkmal für die ermordeten Juden Europas), is a memorial to the Jewish victims of the Holocaust.
It consists of a 19,000 m² site covered with 2,711 concrete slabs or “stelae”, arranged in a grid pattern on a sloping field. The stelae are 2.38 m long, 0.95 m wide and vary in height from 0.2 to 4.8 m. They are organized in rows, 54 of them going north-south, and 87 heading east-west at right angles but set slightly askew.
An information center is located underground displaying historical film and photo documents and video interviews with survivors of the Holocaust. It also holds the names of all known Jewish Holocaust victims.
