Expert review of Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe

A memorial and museum dedicated to the horrors of the Holocaust.

The name says it all: The Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe is a striking, somber reminder of the horrors of the Holocaust. The memorial itself is made up of the expansive Field of Stelae, with nearly 3,000 concrete slabs arranged in an undulating grid. Visitors are encouraged to walk among the slabs, although it’s generally viewed as bad form to climb on them. While the memorial is left open to interpretation, the information centre, located under the memorial, is more factual. The centre is made up of several rooms with information about the history of the Holocaust and its victims, including the highly emotional stories of several individuals.
