Situated between Brandenburg Gate and Postdamer Platz, the Holocaust Memorial is a memorial to the murdered Jews of World War II.
This monument is a field of 2.711 stone monoliths that fill an entire block. Visitors can enter from all four sides, day or night, and wander on their own through the maze of stones, as though visiting a graveyard with nameless tombstones.
The columns are sunk into the ground to various depths and at some places, they are higher than the heads of the visitors. There are no set paths or sign posts to guide viewers. The memorial was designed by architect Peter Eisenman to deliberately disorient visitors by having all the stones tilted slightly and paths that are not level.
