About Holocaust Memorial, Berlin
The Holocaust Memorial is basically a site that is dedicated to the six million people who lost their lives during Hitler’s reign in Germany. The Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe is a site that is probably one of the most heart breaking in the history of the World. The huge space between Brandenburger tor and Potsdamer Platz is covered by grey concrete graves that reflect upon the oppressive and torturous times that the Jews had to go through. The minimalism of this place is what will strike you the first when you go here. The site holds great importance as a memoir of a terrible time for Germany. The graves called the stalae reflect the severe tragedy that ravaged the human life there. Two other memorials to the victims of the Holucast namely; The memorial to the Sinti and Roma of Europe Murdered under the National Socialist Regime, and the Memorial to the Homosexuals Persecuted under the National Socialist Regime, have also been constructed in the same place. They are symbols against the exclusion and intolerance that people have faced over the years.
One cannot stress on the importance of the site enough. It is a memorial like no other in history and one hopes there won’t be another to build. For the tourist it is a site worth visiting and remembering the past. Suggested itineraries: Berlin in 5 days and Berlin itinerary 7 days.

Holocaust Memorial, Berlin Reviews - Write a Review
Quite unique memorial. You can feel the weight of the memory of the Holocaust just by looking at it. I would recommend a visit to the free “museum” located underground before walking through the columns. Very moving experience.
This is a great monument which instead of suggesting a point of view, simply leaves you to form your own personal opinion of what it represents. Walking into the monument is a completely different experience to simply "looking at it" and there's a very interesting effect when you enter with a large group as people quickly and silently disappear from view. The shadows create an effect that seems similar to the "striped pyjamas" and while people are constantly disappearing, the linear nature of the monument makes it impossible to have any expectations of privacy. The monument is very deceptive and while it looks small as you enter into It, it doesn't take long for everything to "pile up around you". In the end, it's really your own feelings that matter. You take out a little of what you take in with you.
This monument is, by far, the best I've ever seen about this topic. There is pure genius behind its creation. If you are in this zone of Berlin, you must see it - the access is free. It will vive you very strong sensations.
top design. You don't have to explain anything. Just walk through here, you will understand. 好的设计是不言自明的
Very moving memorial. The information centre will leave you lost for words. A very sobering and impactful experience.
