Memorial To The Murdered Jews Of Europe

This blog item headline is the official name for the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin. What else is there to say?

The site is a sloping plaza filled with dark grey rectangular columns of various heights. One can't help but think of a field of somber coffins. There's enough room to walk your own path through the 2711 columns, contemplating the ever-changing landscape.

The memorial. The flag in the background? The United States', flying over its embassy.

Depending on light, people appear and quickly disappear among the grid.

Inside view.

The overall feeling is of a nightmarish dream.
