Jewish Memorial

PLACES

The Jewish Memorial in central Berlin, can there be a more somber reminder that 6+ Million Jews were murdered during WW II?

In an area of 19,000 square meters the architect, Peter Eisenman, has placed 2711 concrete slabs of differing heights to create a very thought-provoking experience for any visitor to the site.

For any photographer the site offers challenges not usually present at a memorial, as its deliberate blandness quite rightly creates an atmosphere of gloom, the monotonous grey gnawing relentlessly away at the spirit.

Over the years I’ve been there many times to see whether I can discover anything new there, this is a collection of some of my favourites.
