I am extremely happy I took ten minutes out of my day to appreciate and understand this memorial sculpture. Its an artistic visual prayer in memory of the millions of Jews and other victims who were tortured/murdered by the Nazis and their collaborators from 1933-1945. The sculpture is composed of nine panels, each with different designs. As you view the scupture from different angles, the designs on the panels meld to form distinct images. Ten images come into view as you walk around the panels. My only complaint is it’s not immediately obvious where to stand to see each of the images so I highly recommend taking a picture of the plaque that explains everything or expanding the image of it I’m including with this review.
It is a very interesting piece of artwork that can be viewed from multiple angles that provide many different view of all the artwork. It comes with great pieces of info per view angle.
It's a very beautiful monument right on the river walk. It is artistic in a way that many other memorials are not. For instance, this memorial is colorful where other Holocaust memorials tend to be drab. When viewed from different vantage points, the mural tells a different story through its symbolism. The only thing that it could use are more informational plaques describing the history of the Holocaust.
A nice tribute, good use some better upkeeping
The first stop on places the current POTUS will never visit.
