Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe

Some of the 2,711 concrete stelae, one for each page in the Talmud.

  1. Este monumento tiene unas posibilidades fotográficas increíbles. La toma te ha quedado genial. Lo penoso es lo que representa, realmente sobrecogedor.

  2. What this image represents is very touching. When I clicked on the picture to enlarge I got a way better view. You did a great job capturing and composing it. This one must be seen enlarged.

  6. wonderful commemoration, very cold in perspective.
    tnx for the added info. if that were 2711, then, the whole place would've been massive.

  7. I was wondering how they decided how many to have ... thanks for the info. They are big blocks so the memorial must be enormous.

  8. Thanks for the comments.

    Costea Andrea Mihai: Mulţumesc.

    Ángel: Si. No era yo el único andando por allí con una máquina de fotos.

    Sandra: The original was even larger (4,000 x 3,000 pixels), but you cannot really appreciate that on a normal computer screen.

    Luis Gomez: Gracias.

    Fernando Gonzalez Seral: Gracias.

    Cezar and Léia: Obrigado.

    Frau G: Das Konzept ist überwältigend. Man muss es immer anschauen.

    laurent: Merci.

    arabesque: The place is massive. Moreover, the deeper you go into the labyrinth, the taller the slabs become, the tallest being 4 or 5 metres, I think.

    Joan Elizabeth: Wikipedia, of course, has more info - Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe. It is truly massive and you do get a feeling of being overwhelmed by the grey monotony.
