Architecture of the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe
From our free online course, “The Architectural Imagination”:
Harvard Professor K. Michael Hays examines a work so minimal that some might not think of it as architecture at all; and yet, the project is tasked with the demand to carry the memory of perhaps the most profound of all human traumas. The Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe designed by architect Peter Eisenman is a project that uses the very abstraction and materiality that is inherent to the medium of architecture. This becomes the device with which to raise questions of architecture's power of representation rather than answer them.

Germany - Berlin Holocaust Memorial.
Was in Germany 2010 for a few weeks. A very interesting country with much to see and do. This Berlin film of the Holocaust Memorial just a 5 minute walk from the 'Brandenburg Gate'. Caused controversy for some having it in Berlin I was told. many theories as to why this design - many ideas. Designer has not let on! One theory from memory is that if you multiply the number of stones by itself for each stone equals the number killed... Another is that the early stones are shorter and as you walk this reflects increasing oppression of the era.
Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe
This is an essential stop for any visit to Berlin. It's been criticized for focusing on just one of the groups targeted by the Nazis, but the German government has now erected memorials to other victims. It's also criticized because there's nothing Jewish about it. Some were struck that there's no central gathering point...no place for a ceremony. Like death, you enter it alone. There is no intended meaning. Is it a labyrinth...a symbolic cemetery...and intentionally disorienting? It's entirely up to the visitor to derive the meaning, while pondering this horrible chapter in human history. What was your reaction to this memorial?

Chapter 7: Visiting the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin
Mansour Omari, a Syrian human rights activist who was imprisoned for nine months and tortured by the Assad regime, smuggled out scraps of cloth recording the names of all 82 of his cellmates. The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is exhibiting them to raise awareness of atrocities committed by the regime. This is Mansour’s story. [Paragraph] In chapter 7, during a visit to Germany, Mansour learns about the history of Holocaust memory in that country, where Nazi rule precipitated the murder of six million Jews and and other victims from 1933–1945. All of Germany's memorials began with the efforts of individuals or small groups and encountered resistance, says Klaus Mueller, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum's representative there. The first step, Mueller said, is remembering the victims—a process Mansour has started in Syria by saving some of their names.

Berlin, Germany - Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe HD (2013)
The Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe (German: Denkmal für die ermordeten Juden Europas), also known as the Holocaust Memorial (German: Holocaust-Mahnmal), is a memorial in Berlin to the Jewish victims of the Holocaust, designed by architect Peter Eisenman and engineer Buro Happold. It consists of a 19,000 m2 (4.7 acres) site covered with 2,711 concrete slabs or stelae, arranged in a grid pattern on a sloping field. The stelae are 2.38 m (7 ft 10 in) long, 0.95 m (3 ft 1 in) wide and vary in height from 0.2 to 4.8 m (8 in to 15 ft 9 in). According to Eisenman's project text, the stelae are designed to produce an uneasy, confusing atmosphere, and the whole sculpture aims to represent a supposedly ordered system that has lost touch with human reason. A 2005 copy of the Foundation for the Memorial's official English tourist pamphlet, however, states that the design represents a radical approach to the traditional concept of a memorial, partly because Eisenman did not use any symbolism. However, observers have noted the memorial's resemblance to a cemetery. An attached underground Place of Information (German: Ort der Information) holds the names of all known Jewish Holocaust victims, obtained from the Israeli museum Yad Vashem.
Building began on April 1, 2003 and was finished on December 15, 2004. It was inaugurated on May 10, 2005, sixty years after the end of World War II, and opened to the public two days later. It is located one block south of the Brandenburg Gate, in the Friedrichstadt neighborhood. The cost of construction was approximately €25 million.
