Holocaust Memorial

Located in the center of Berlin, the Holocaust Memorial, officially known as the "Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe," was built to commemorate the millions of Jewish victims of the Holocaust perpetrated by Nazi Germany. Opened in 2005, this memorial is designed by the American architect Peter Eisenman and is situated near the Brandenburg Gate.


The Holocaust Memorial consists of 2,711 concrete blocks (stelae) spread over an area of 19,000 square meters. Each block, varying in height and width, resembles an irregular labyrinth, creating a profound visual and emotional impact on visitors. The Information Center, located beneath the memorial, provides a detailed insight into the history of the Holocaust and the stories of its victims. Visitors have the opportunity to deeply understand the effects of the Holocaust through personal letters, photographs, and memoirs.


The Holocaust Memorial is a powerful and thought-provoking monument that reminds us of one of the darkest periods in Berlin's and the world's history. This site plays an essential role in ensuring that this horrific chapter of history is not forgotten and is passed on to future generations. The design of the memorial and the information it presents not only offer a historical lesson but also prompt reflections on the darker aspects of humanity and the importance of peace and tolerance. A meaningful and necessary stop for every visitor to Berlin, the Holocaust Memorial serves as a reminder to prevent the repetition of history.
