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.

Really amazing piece of heart. Words cannot express how I felt when I came to this memorial. Definitely worth the visiting whenever in Berlin. The underground museum is also amazing, really detailed and it's for free. It's just sad that some people don't respect the place and keep climbing on it.
A modern architectural design that appears to be abstract till such time one hears the concept. Else it would simply be a maze where one can watch children running around and playing hide and seek. Not that elders can't do the same.
This Memorial is stunning and brings up very strong emotions. Just walking among the huge concrete pillars makes you feel a brush of history. It is impressive, and it brings a strong message to the future: Let this never happen again! - EVER!
Visually impressive and impactful space which is well worth a visit. It’s really hard to describe just how disorientated and unsettled it makes you feel. Please note the information boards around the site to be respectful by not climbing on the stones. Make sure you allocate time to visit the information centre underneath the memorial and get an audio guide to fully understand the context. Just be prepared that some of the personal accounts are extremely harrowing.
Nothing should be said about this memorial to people who have not yet seen it, other than that it is without a doubt worth a visit. Part of the profound impact of this memorial is not knowing what to expect. The artist managed to capture/evoke feelings and emotions that are but a small glimpse of what it must have been like - but, this does not make for a negative experience, rather one of realization and empathy. Take a (solitary) stroll through the memorial, and be overwhelmed by it. The effect is even better if there are other people walking through at the same time.
